Butchering Time

Fall has come and along with it cooler temperatures, which for us this year meant that it was time to butcher the two pigs we got in the spring. While I suggested the names Pork Chop and Ham Hock the kids picked out the names Spot and Piglet. Spot was the girl and the bigger of the two. She was very bossy and pushy and Piglet was the boy and a runt. He had his bossy and pushy moments too, but was simply outweighed. We were often entertained with their barking and watching their games of chase. It was a wonderful experience to share with the kids. From making sure they were fed and watered, kept cool in the summer, and then finally the butchering process.
