    Gunther wouldn't just happen to be the spittin' image of your husband, would he?

    One of my favorite fiddle tunes is "Squirrel Heads and Gravy". There's a whole slew of edible "animal cruelty" fiddle tunes featuring ground hogs and squirrels.

    So, the cat wouldn't eat the livers, either, eh?

    We raise our own chickens, pigs & have raised 2 steers before. The bigger critters we had the knacker come in to do the killing and butchering, mainly because we wanted it done humanely and fast, but we helped with the aftermath (including 'salvaging' fresh offal). The chickens are DIY slaughter via hatchet.

    Below are links to blog posts involving animal slaughter on our place. Graphic, but informative, if you've never participated or observed.

    yeah, I am thinking about that steer...I think the hanging place we use for the goats and sheep will not be big/strong enough for it. Might have to hang it from the excavator bucket.
