Piggy Hair

We used to hang them up with a singletree to both hind legs and lift them up with a block and tackle, lower them down into very hot barrel of water, lift them out and scrape off the hair with butcher knives.

Deerhides nailed to the side of the barn, fat and flesh scraped off, salted and dried hanging there I put on the ground and covered the hair side with a mush of wood ashes and water, rolled them up a few days and then scraped the hair off easily. Ought to work on Miss piggy's fur coat.
