So my mom set me up on a blind date a few months ago with her friend's son. I went to make her happy and I was pleasantly surprised. The guy is handsome, funny, and seemed very nice. I saw him several more times. He's a professional musician and plays violin and several other instruments. I had no idea how many animals are killed for violins. I'm a vegan and I have to stop seeing him. I'm really grossed out about the whole thing and my mom is pissed at me now for mother's day. I was going to go to breakfast with her tomorrow morning but now I don't want to. UGH, I wish she would just let this go.

The bow is horse hair and the strings are made from sheep's guts. Its horrifying.

Um... violins are made of wood dear. The horse hair bows... pretty sure the horses are not killed for that! Not positive though. The strings are metal.
