Slaughter Day [and some kinda graphic images]

 

Today was meat bird slaughter day. It was so fun to photograph. O_O Like. Artistic-ness all over the place, right? If I had had a more macro lens, I could have done some EPIC abstract work. <3

y’all can’t sue me if my pictures scar you for life. I warned you. =P They really aren’t that bad though. It’s just blood. We all have a couple gallons of that inside us anyhow. When you live on a farm, blood is normal. As is death, and being the bringer of death. It’s what happens, and it’s life. And it’s called dinner too, in this instance. =P

And it makes up for it in the spring, when new life is bursting out all over the place. Blood isn’t always bad =)

 

Anyhow. Pictures. for those of you interested. Peruse at your own risk. ;) Some of them are pretty awesome, if I do say so myself…=D

*makes gallery so the pics are smaller so no one has to get too grossed out unless they want to*

      And thanks. I think the barn cats are scarred for life. Aaron hid in the lilac tree and howled the whole time…=P

        The one with the three slaughter-bucket-things-whatever-they’re-called. And the poor kitty. If he’s too traumatized by the event, you could always send him to me.

      Haha. *shrugs* I’m sorry. My life is weird. I have to roll with the punches. =P If you don’t take everything with a grain of salt and look for something funny in it all, even if it’s not a funny subject in the least, you go crazy. Farming requires an inhuman amount of optimism.

        *smirks* I’m just hyper tonight. Don’t judge me, it is the first time in months (I kid you not) that I have ever been feeling this good lolz. XP Besides, slaughtering isn’t much worse than hunting.
