Hard Luck And Good Music

Occasionally one of the pigs will develop a problem that requires us to harvest the meat prematurely.

We keep a close eye on them so we can act quickly.

Last week, we had a pig with a rectal prolapse.  Ugly and painful, but not infected.

Once the meat was cooled, we needed to find a way to prepare it–but what fun is there in eating a whole pig by yourself?

So DP cut it up, I made pulled pork and we took it to a

Rocky Top Concert potluck dinner

where Deborah Robins and Larry Hanks

were performing.

What delightful people they are!  We especially enjoyed the song, I Heard the Voice of the Pork Chop Calling.

Larry demonstrated his Jew’s Harp for the kids.

We left before the impromtu jam session since the kids were hours past their bedtime.
