"Life as a Polyface Apprentice." It is not mine. And this is why:
I had said to myself that I was going to butcher the rabbits this weekend. It was going to be warm. Perfect time to do it. Yet, I didn't. I couldn't decide if they were big enough. I know that they are about 2 1/2 months old, but they don't seem all that large in comparison to the parents. In comparison to the second litter, they are a good size, but I still couldn't seem to make up my mind. Truthfully, I'm think I'm just putting off the nasty. So, to shake off excuse 1 (They're not big enough) I shut up the hutch with a couple first litter rabbits in it and picked one up. Probably 4 pounds. So a week or two won't hurt, I guess. I just have to put my mind to it and do it. If I'm going to be serious about the meat rabbits I need to be serious. Someone at the Kingdom Hall found out I had meat rabbits and got so excited I was scared for their heart health. It seems they want one, butchered, and for some reason that made me greedy. I only have 4, I said to myself, and all the time and food it took really can't be compensated for, I said to myself, and one little rabbit won't satisfy their appetite, I said to myself....but I think it's just procrastination.
Time to man up, Laura.
I don't think it's working.
Sure it is. You just need to go over the tutorial a few more times.
Okay. I'll study the steps til I could do it in my sleep. Can I?
Do it in my sleep? That might be easier.
