4 Sheep Die on Local Farm....

Michelle had 4 sheep butchered today so I am tanning the hides as an experiment. I have flayed & salted one with some success and will see it through to the finish before I attempt the other three which are in the freezer. Yes, it is as difficult & tedious as it looks but it is not an unpleasant job and actually the fresh hide feels lovely and it only smells a bit "sheepy". Before I attempt the next one I will aquire suitable tools.
