Since we went in together with our son DJ and friends Brian and Rebecka. They came up to help butcher. DJ was unable to as he is on a different shift now and doesn't have Mondays off.

We had lunch about 12 noon with 8 x-rocks left to butcher. I had made lentil, vegetable,yak soup a couple of days before to go with potato rolls, homemade plum and rhubarb/strawberry jams and hot water chocolate cake for dessert; then back to work.
We finally finished up at 4:30, we got their bird put in their coolers with ice and ours and DJ's stuck into the freezer.
Some clean up and B & R were on their way home.
Dave had to shower and get on his way to town to City council meeting.
I showered after him rested for a bit and then went out to collect eggs. Boy had i stiffened up.
When Dave got home a couple of hours later we got everything picked up and put away, well all except for our homemade table which we will carry up to the barn tonight.
