Working dogs will run their weight right off after a couple of long days of working. I swear Trapper can drop 5lbs over the course of one hunt (Lacy Dogs should been lean working machines to begin with..but imagine them dropping weight like that!). They leave "pudgy" and come back skinny minis...so we double up on feed. Thank God we are overwhelmed with Taxidermist in the Hill Country, more than happy to give us their venison scrap and bones!

If you're wanting to feed raw thats a good place to start is with your local taxidermist.
We get 55gallon drums full and package it for later. NOW we have a heck of a lot of dogs so 55 gallon drums don't last us long BUT if you only have one or two..that could last you a long time. AND it's free other than the freezer bags or freezer paper & a little of your time.

According to Steve, Sadie is looking "pudgy" and needs a long hunting weekend to lean up. I thought he was full of it, she is one of the lankiest Lacys I've ever seen, but I just got on the scale with her and she is at 34 lbs! At 20" that sounds about right, but it is certainly the most she has ever weighed, she is normal closer to 30. She might need one of those 20 mile runs after all.
