Dead red pig: FYI

75da4-freezer002

Most of Red looks like this now.

Interesting facts:

  1. Red’s problem was not an illness or a disease.  It was, as I originally suspected, a dislocated hip.
  2. You can safely give pigs plain, uncoated aspirin at a rate of 5 mg per pound of body weight once every 6-8 hours.*
  3. Sausage-making really is disgusting.  Matt’s making some right this very second and the noises are both horrific and hilarious.  Lots of squelching and squealing and ketchup-bottle-farting sounds are coming from the KitchenAid.
