Nilo Amier massages Bag Balm into her chapped hands. Formulated 100 years ago to soften the udders of milking cows, the salve works just as well on people, said Amier, who tends a half-acre mini-ranch in Tarzana. "And it sure beats Vaseline." Canyon Country feed dealers Odie Fox and his son Jerry swear by Flex Free, a pricey supplement for easing stress and strains in horses. One dissolves a pinch of the bitter powder in his orange juice. The other sprinkles it on breakfast cereal.

Regarding the Feb. 22 letter from P. Johnston in response to the vegetarian article on Feb. 1: Gee whiz, P. Johnston! What are you so angry about? I am a vegan and know many other people who are vegan (those who eat no animal products at all, as opposed to ovo-lacto vegetarians who eat eggs and dairy products). Neither I nor any of the other vegans I know buy, use or eat any animal products . . . no leather anything, no fur, no skins. I hope your [leather-wearing vegetarian] friend has made merely the first step in becoming a vegan with a truly compassionate and non-harmful lifestyle.

There is a really dire problem with wildlife in foreign countries. Their plight is horrific when you think of all the circumstances under which they are being exploited. Please ask your readers not to buy any live animal or bird, or any wildlife product such as fur, skin, ivory or tortoise shell. Discourage them from having their pictures taken with chimpanzees, monkeys or lion cubs. (It is a big racket at many of the world's beach resorts and one which involves gross cruelty.)

Acknowledging the existence of animal cruelty is unpleasant, and getting people to actually watch footage of it is understandably difficult. The folks at Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM) found one way: Pay them. Operating on the premise that watching a four-minute video could persuade a viewer to drastically and permanently reduce the amount of animal products consumed in their diet, FARM launched a national tour in early May to show the public a graphic “Farm to Fridge” video, made with hidden-camera footage showing farm animals, including cows, chickens and pigs, living in factory farm conditions and being processed at slaughter.
