A Mixed Bag

So today it is cold outside.  I decided to spoil the sheep some by giving them pieces of English muffins.  Here they are just after the spoiling, looking for more.

But being a critter here is a mixed bag.  Because Monday we butchered our two hogs, Curly and Moe.

We also had Jack, our goat, butchered.  This is because, per Tom, he is a maintenance nightmare.  He beat me up to the point of bruises when I trimmed his hooves, and he was quite damaging to our fences.

So some animals enjoy English muffins, and others get a bullet this week at Schoonover Farm.

  1. Sounds like a lot of good meals coming your way. Have you butchered a goat before? How do you prepare it?
