This is Chessie sleeping on a blanket that was born and raised right here. This is a fleece from a ram lamb we butchered last fall. We have enjoyed the meat from that lamb all winter and the hide is across the back of one of the couches in the living room. I fleshed and tanned the hide myself. It was my first time at tanning and I enjoyed doing it. Since then, I have been working on coon hides. This fall I plan to try my hand at some deer hides. In the meantime, Chessie finds this to be the perfect place for a nap.
