Buck's County Fur: The Tannery

On Thursday I went to Quakertown, Pennsylvania to pick up seventeen sheepskins from Buck's County Fur. Some of the hides were purebred Saxon Merino ram lambs; they were taken from Springfield Meats to the tannery the same day as they are near one another. Brian—the chief tanner—says, "Springfield does a good job."

These tanned sheepskins were worth every penny they were priced at; most importantly they were as fine as Saxon Merino lambs should be.
