What a day. Pension / grant payout, and it was also Eid (the day of sacrifice). We headed out to the farm to slaughter 5 sheep. My brother did the honours this year, and about an hour later 5 woolly sheep were skinned, gutted, and hung up in hte cold room.

Tomorrow should be slightly eaasier lookign forward to the morning shave with some new gear


Hey RVT,

What happened to the Sheep Wool?

I'm thinking you missed a trick there.

RVT Wool Fat??

The wool is still attached to the sheep skin. It just just gets donated. Must be a hell of a process getting the soap out of the wool.

Soap out the wool? :? :lol:

It's the fat I was after.

Soap out of the wool? Funny that I've never seen a green sheep considering how much sunlight soap sells...

Gets you thinking about South African sources of fat....

Nguni cow tallow?
Karoo sheep fat?

Hi JHB,

Indeed it's quite a trick to find these fats. I enjoy making natural soaps, but I have to render my own tallow if I want to use it in soap. That takes hours and hours and still leaves you with the risk of impurities.
I don't mind cooking with it though. Apparently, this is the best way to make vetkoek, but I haven't tried it yet.

It's easier to find lard than tallow.

I've at least found a supplier for lanolin (wool fat) now and that feels great in soap.

So nobody's talking about the Springboks this weekend??? Can't blame you.
The All blacks are just in a league of their own.

Luckily I was at my son's cricket in the morning, so I missed the game. Just saw a few highlights afterwards.

Morning all. Weekend at last. Cloudy and a spot of rain here on the east coast.

I see there has been no update on the lions on the loose in Fochville

https://www.timeslive.co.za/news/south- ... ille-area/

I hear Lion breeding / farming has become very popular. I've even hear dof cases where sheep/goat farmers have traded in the livestock for Lions. I suppose there's more money in the lion business but is it really worth the risk?! :shock:

Something weird about farming animals that can eat you for lunch ...

True!
Normal is to breed animals that you can eat for lunch. Not vise versa.

Morning chaps,

Got a chance ot try out the doughnuts from the American franchise Krispy Kreme. The filled donuts were good , but the normal plain ones were not very nice (IMHO).

Call me old fashioned but for me, these will always be Doughnuts! :drool: :drool: :drool:

Saw this post on Facebook... :lol: :lol:

Decided to abandon my plans for a quiet night reading scripture in the hotel room and phoned up 'The Party Girl Hotline'. When the lady answered I went into very explicit detail of what my requirements were for the evening and asked for a price estimate. To my great surprise the lady said she didn't know the price - because it was Evelyn from reception speaking, and if I wanted an outside line I had to dial 00 first. :(
