Anyang. I got a very nice reception and met all the people there. Got
a good impresion of the production. Also I have inported several Anyang
hammers to Scandinavia. You can look at the pictures from my trip on the

I've eaten horse and donkey.
The donkey we roasted. Everything's good roasted, even bear. :)
The horse we made "whole horse;)" jerky from her, man was it ever
good! Best jerky I ever had. Hated to see her go tho, Lightning
was my favorite lion huntin horse. She got hurt and just couldn't
heal up. Seems like she was given 8 months to show improvement.
The cowboy (that owned her) was going to "knock her in the head"
when I told him I wanted to make jerky from her and to bring her
home from New Mexico. He did and we did.
She'd been grabbed and got away from a lion when she was very young
and never forgot it somehow... she really hated to be left behind!
She carried the scares on her rump from it, her whole life.
I could wrap the reins around her neck and let her loose and she'd
stay with the rest of the horses. :) Most horses will haul-ass home
on you. :/ Anyway, Lightning made it easy to follow the hound dogs
on foot, where the horses couldn't go, and the others would have to
find a way around to meet up again with the dogs (and us on foot).
Well heck, no one had to "lead" Lightning, she was right there, and
rested up compared to the other horses and ready to go. :)
She was tough as nails anyway, typical cowboy horse... not like the
penned up "pet horses" others would sometimes bring lion hunting. :/
Those horses (big fancy-ass expensive geldings etc) would stop in
mid-afternoon and just stand on the trail and shiver from
exhaustion. More than once I rode Lightning up the side of the
mountain around the "fancy" horse and back down to the trail "on my
scruffy little mare" and continue following the dogs until well
after night fall if needed. Lightning could do that several days
in a row too. We both had BTDT! :)
She was my favorite tasting horse too. ;)
Damn I didn't want to see her go but that part was out of my hands,
I shot her in the X formed by the eyes and the ears with my 9mm and
dressed her out, quartered etc on a cool, sunny afternoon with my
Sorry, the knife ain't "blacksmithed". :/
He won't. :) But he -will- go, like we all. :)
Just try not to go like a friggin sissy, ok? ;)
Thanks for the heads up Beagle, I'll make a point of checking them
out now, would have skipped the website otherwise. :)
