Our New Addition and Venison Stock
This is our newest little (for now) addition. He's a great pyrenees pup we got to be a livestock guardian dog (LGD). With the investment I have in the goats, I cannot bear the thought of losing one to a coyote.
The little guy is in a stall in the barn tonight. I made the mistake of going to check on him about 8:30 and he cried the whole time I walked back to the house. Note to self- that was a mistake.
I hope he settles in okay. This is the first night away from his mama and he's pretty much on his own. I did a supervised introduction with the goats and Kat still managed to give him a good head butt. I know that will go on until he learns his place in the herd, but he's still so small, I don't want them to hurt him.
I have also been working on all this venison stock. I have 21 quarts of it canned so far and one more batch to go.
My mom's harvest gold pressure canner.
And don't forget the deer jerky!
