I love heart – I love it roasted and sliced in a salad with pickled walnuts in a ‘not quite as good’ St John’s style.
I also love my dog. This time he got the hearts from our OSB pigs.
I am keeping the lambs’ hearts for me though …. all for me.
Kainaat eats a raw diet – he eats bones, carcass, skin etc from our animals with some minced up veggies from the smallholding and eggs – a lot of eggs – especially in the winter when we have quite a few spare and no campers to buy them.
See here for where we get our dog food from …. not from the shop (hee hee)
Anyway, for training he needs special rewards – a biscuit isn’t going to motivate him, not when he eats so well.
So I roasted the hearts and then when they were cool I chopped them into small cubes. I don’t want sloppy raw heart in my pocket when training.
And now we are using them to help improve his retrieve and heelwork.
