butchering chancho

May 24, 2011 § 1 Comment

late last afternoon, one of the pigs choked on the feed and died, forcing don carlos to butcher chancho two months earlier than planned. i accompanied don carlos to the farm, lending a helping hand here and there (i helped carry chancho), but mostly to take photos. surprisingly, i did not vomit. also, the pictures are a bit graphic. photos of the organs are excluded from my flickr. (note: chancho is not a name given to the pig, like robert or carol or fluffy; rather, it’s merely another spanish term for “pig”)
