Cattle Dhog is having a tough time lately. Coco the new hoss chased his ass all the way across the turnout yesterday after he tried to herd her a little too much and then he tries to play with Dan the Goat and gets surprise head butts.

The first time Dan turned around and butted him his face was full of surprise and wonderment. It was so much funny.

Coco worries me a little because I think she was really trying to stomp his ass flat. Maybe he learned though, because he hasn't gone too close to her since.

Last Thursday Hammy the pigt decided to topple her shelter over and shove it around. I went out to pull i back upright and move it out of the way of her water supply. The footer tore loose as I pulled on it and one of the exposed #10 screws ran across my middle and index fingers.

Ouch, stitches required.

I figured that if the pig was big enough to be trucking heavy items around her pen it was time to call the mobile slaughter.

Hammy goes to the butcher Thursday.

(yeah, I'm i'm petty like that)

That asshole Hammy the pig disappointed on all fronts.
She never liked people or trained worth a damn.
She was a slow grower and cost me extra feed to get any size on her.
She tore shit apart in her pen just because.

The last blow is after slaughter the hang weight of her was only 138 pounds.
For comparison, Buckle was 201.
That damn pig came in skinny and isn't going to yield as much of the deliciousness.

I'm going to rage eat every bite of that damned swine.

That's a big difference. Same breed of pig?

Yes, same Hampshire/Yorkshire crossbreed.
They came from the same litter, even.

In other news, the turkeys are doing pretty well, they also massive goons. I can call to them from the back porch and they all run to the fence and answer me.

A dude wishes. I started them a little too late this year, next year I'll start them a month sooner.

Still, on December 16th I'm going to turn them all into meat in a bag. So Christmas and New Year's are covered.

I'm thinking when I do the slaughter that I'll take the smaller ones and pull out the shears and spatchcock the carcass right there. Put them flat in a freezer bag so they'll stack easier in the freezer, defrost faster and go on the grill or smoker for a quick and tasty cook.

I smoked the last store-bought turkey this weekend. Is it messed up that the laying hens and the turkeys could watch me do their brethren like this?

Hammy gave me back 23 lbs. of cased bratwurst. Much is forgiven.

Also, spouse called in the butcher order this time and went with center loin chops and country style ribs to go with the spare ribs. So, fewer roasts but more items that go well on the grill this time. Also, both hams were cured and cut in half instead of using one for ham steaks, so there's 4 nice little 6 lb. hams.

Also, I took spouse with me to the butcher for pick up so she could check out their meat counter(s). While I was paying and waiting for my Hammy, she had already gotten rib eyes, ground sirloin, beef shish-ka-bobs and an entire rabbit. So I guess she approved of the place.

She surprised me with the rabbit, she told me to keep my face shut and she'd make it for me and the kids and feed it to them in a blind test. If they like it she said I could build a hutch and breed some meat rabbits for the pot. Big surprise, her rural roots are showing.

Just last night I made a paella that was supposed to be half chicken, half rabbit. But I wussed out and made it all with chicken. I'd have happily tried the rabbit but my kids (esp. the youngest) would have freaked out on me if they learned I was feeding them Flopsy and Mopsy.

I ate the first of the sirloin chops from Hammy. All is forgiven.

Went out this morning and found a turkey dead, no obvious signs why. :-(

The next goat, Neopolean, comes home Sunday. Cute goat baby pictures forthcoming.
