You know you've fed raw a long time when...

Postby pitbullmamaliz » December 14th, 2012, 11:18 pm

1. You get blood splattered all over your slippers and you just sigh and keep doing what you were doing.
2. You take an inordinate amount of joy in ripping meat and bones apart with your bare hands.
3. You forget to warn people of all the meat pieces when they open your fridge.

4. You get excited to dig through hundreds of pounds of raw meat to re-bag it for the freezer.

5. You laugh and send pictures of the 100 pounds of deer carcases on your kitchen table.

6. You think it's normal to have 100 pounds of deer carcases on your kitchen table.

7. A "meat run" is a regular occurrence at your house and your friends go "what kind of meat did you pick up this week?!"

8. You call a friend asking if you can leave a deer leg in her freezer, just until you buy your own chest freezer!

9. You think it's hysterical to hide pigs heads in bags that you give to your friends (my poor friends LOL!).

10. You're jealous that your friend has access to pig heads, and contemplate a 10 hour round trip to go get your own pig heads.

Ha! I've been eying a pair of probable blood trickles on the kitchen wall right behind the scale for a few days. now thinking - 'hmmmmm, look that's probably something gross'.. Now that I'm saying the words, that IS pretty gross, so I'm off to scrub them!

10. You read the store circulars JUST for (dog) meat prices with no intention of shopping for the household on that run.

11. You pour a drink and lay 30lbs of assorted eat on the counter to hack up for a couple of hours (inc. bagging).

12. You are proud of cutting up a 5+ chicken in less than 5 minutes.

What? Was my #10 not good enough for you? You had to have your OWN #10??

13. The thought of having to pick up poop from a kibble-fed dog makes your gag reflex kick in.
14. You discuss your dog's poop on an extremely regular basis and can tell from the color/consistency what meat has been fed.
15. You enjoy interrogating people who sell pre-made raw mixes (asked somebody today if the meat was grain-fed or grass-fed - his response was, "it's complicated." No, it's not.)
16. You open the fridge or freezer and all meat inside is for the dog, not you.
17. When you buy meat for yourself, you almost feel guilty eating it.

That probably means grass fed, grain finished. Or grain fed but it's organic grain so that somehow makes it better.

He was really focused on tripe and said that because you can only get so much tripe from one cow, small grass-fed farms often have to buy tripe from other farms and they won't know how it was raised. I wanted to say, "they will if they are concerned" but didn't feel like arguing.

That was one nice set of bones! (Yet another symptom of feeding raw a long time)

Thanks! I don't know what's worse the fact that I would do that or the fact that she just looked at me and said OK I will watch T.V. for a bit and do my homework! :crazy2:

When you poll Facebook on what type of sawzall blade would work best for cutting deer legs up, hoping your hunting buddies will reply, and also hoping that your friends don't think you're the next Dexter.

When you take over the garage for 2 days, forcing your boyfriend's precious cars outside, so you have more room to "bag and tag" your latest venison haul.

I must have missed that post. :) We used a multi-purpose blade in the sawzall. It went through with no problems.

So glad I'm not the only one who A) drinks while processing and B ) times myself processing. :P

I was also asked about Andre's poop condition by the vet, and since I'm feeding him kibble right now, I had to really think about it and describe it before I knew whether it was ok or not... there's so much of it. And it's so gross. (since bringing him in, I have a LOT more poop on my shoes if I don't scoop very regularly; raw has spoiled me)
