Hammy


This place begins to look more and more like a little farm. I didn't really want a pig, but our neighbours thought Sarah would love him. They wanted a pig, but couldn't get just one. They bought two for $10 each, and gave Sarah the extra one. The next day, after both pigs got loose and ran around in our back yard (on a Sunday morning), the neighbours decided they didn't want a pig after all. No, we did not take it.

Anyway, Hammy (also known as Porky) is destined to bless our table come fall. Yum.

Yummy! Nothing's better than fresh bacon.

Is Sarah sad about letting him go?

Sarah is looking forward to ham and bacon. Sarah is the kind of person who looks at certain animals and thinks "people food" either as meat, eggs, or milk. At age 12 or so, she was disappointed when her dad would not let her watch the rabbits being killed. He did let her help with the skinning, though.

Ha ha, I figured that out when I looked over at her site and saw the meat proportions guide. : D

he thought that since i had raised them and they had been my rabbits that it would have been traumatizing to me. i think the biggest reason i was annoyed was because he let elijah and joseph watch if they wanted to.
