This is Sassy, a blonde cocker spaniel that has as you can see never missed a meal.
We’re trying to cut back on her food a little and I will honestly tell you she eats what we eat. One of the benefits of having our own farm is being able to hunt on our own land. We do love venison and use it in so many way but that’s another post. The reason for this post is to tell you that one of the most nutritious and weight conscious things we feed Sassy is our own homemade deer jerky with no seasoning or additives.
Hubby will take a shoulder of a deer and partially freeze it and then thinly slice it on his meat saw. I then layer it in our dehydrator at 155* for about 6-7 hours until very dry and then pack it in ziploc freezer bags and pop it in the freezer. Depending on the size of the deer, we usually get three gallon bags of dried jerky from each shoulder.
Sassy get a slice for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacktime, and bedtime, well, she wishes she got it that much but she does love it.
