174: Horses are not Machines!

174: Horses are not Machines!

With Del Mar Racing Season in full swing, Ellen Ericksen is back to talk about the horses! According to www.HorseRacingWrongs.com, as of July 2019, the beginning of the season for California, 63 horses have already been reported as dead as a result of this cruel industry, people call a "sport". Unfortunately, the reported deaths are often modest compared to the actual deaths due to under-reporting and other deceitful conduct, in order to keep numbers low, and ticket sales high.

Current stats (CA only), as of 7/24/2019:
Del Mar: 2 dead
Golden Gate Fields: 13 dead
Los Alamitos Race Course: 10 dead
Santa Anita Park: 35 dead
Alameda County Fair, Pleasanton: 3 dead

Protests every Saturday at 11:30am at Del Mar until September 3rd, 2019

Grant Plummer is the founder of Veg'n Out, one of San Diego's best burger joints! After years of his family talking about veganism, the concept finally clicked for him when he learned about the environmental impact that animal agriculture has on the planet.

With menu items such as the Pepper Crusted Bacon Cheeseburger and Spicy Jalapeno Kraut Burger, Grant continues to make food that break the stereotype of what most people think of when they hear the word "vegan"!

127: Rowdy Girl Sanctuary

127: Rowdy Girl Sanctuary

Renee King-Sonnen went from rancher's wife to vegan highly because of a special calf she calls Rowdy Girl. Renee's husband Tommy wanted her to care for the calf, hoping that she would become a better Rancher's Wife.

Renee quickly realized the cows were sentient beings as she watched the mothers and babies cry for each other when they were separated. She bought Rowdy Girl for $300, which gave her the official title as a "Rancher", having no idea that this was to be the beginning of her journey towards veganism.

Today, Renee and Tommy's ranch that was once called "Sonnen Ranch" is a sanctuary named after her calf, Rowdy Girl. Rowdy Girl Sanctuary is recognized as a 501C-3 (Non-Profit) and houses 107 animals, 62 of which are cows!

103: The Butcher's Son

Forrest Folen went from Butcher's son to VEGAN! Aside from the major mental shift that was necessary for this transformation, Forrest is very well connected with the health and fitness community. However, we wasn't always the fitness guy either. When he was younger, he made some poor health choices, which led him to homelessness. Now, he's been in the fitness industry for over 17 years and has opened multiple boot camp locations along the coast of California. He's also done consulting for over 200 fitness centers around the world and spends a lot of his time working closely with an organization called "Solutions for Change", which is dedicated towards helping those in need.
