The Crying Butcher

I have been dreading this day…  After the last effort at doing dog tuckers, I knew that eventually the meat would run out and I would have to face it again.    And sure enough, after feeding out silage this morning, I was told to ‘do’ 8-10 dog tuckers after lunch.  Last time loomed large in my memory, and I had to go through a cry.   A few heaving teary sobs later I got over the mental block and ended up doing 5, including skinning them.  I’m getting better at sharpening the butcher’s knife too.

Stressful afternoon.



  1. Well done you! Lovely tug-at-the-heartstrings photo! I think it would be much easier to shoot them than slitting the throats. Blue and Bronc anf their friends will be very grateful.
