  • Scrotums

    Hahahaha...I bet that word got everyone's attention. :p
    Anyway, a friend cut 30 calves yesterday and wants to use the scrotums in her crafts but never treated them prior to use herself before. (neither have i) Can anyone here give any pointers, tips, etc...on the best way to treat these scrotums so they can be made into pouches?
    Thanks in advance for any help. ;)

    So are you looking for a professional scrotum handler or would an amateur do? :Angel2

    I won't mention any names!

          Please : no one ask me why I know this...
          To make old style containers or canteens.
          1. Soak them over night in strong salt water with a dash of full strenght Lysol. (comes in little brown bottles)
          2. fill with dry, hot sand, (bake it in the oven at 200 for and hour.
          3. shape using sand as filler. put a cork in it.
          at the top..pull edges up to the cork and wrap with sinew.
          this make the neck and stopper.
          4. dry them slowly over a cool smokey fire.. do not cook them.... dry them.
          They finish up hard and dry like rawhide.
          then throw them away cause there nasty and no one today needs one!
          Some just will just rot..
          If you sell them on Ebay I am afraid I will see some goof drinking Kool- aid out of one at Powow this summer..
          Tan em and sell them as bags......Why?
          The guys with dog skulls on sticks and dead skunks on heads want em....

            Don't worry, no one will ask because we all know that Shawnee & Creek people have and still use these as koolaid holders. It's good to know that you are keeping your customs alive.
            It's tradish.

              Hmmm, that question could start a whole new thread...the pros and cons of pros or amateurs. hehehehe

              But anyway, moving on...I'll let that one pass. ;)

              As for an answer to your question Storm, I don't think she's selling them and as to what type of bags she's making with them I didn't ask. Maybe marble bags for her grandbabies. lol This lady finds a use for everything. I do thank you for your info and will pass it on to her.

                Depending on how you want the leather here is some tips.

                If you do the tanning in the cold weather the scrotums tend to shrink up and you will end up with thicker smaller pieces of leather.

                If you tan them in the heat they stretch out and you get thinner leather.

                Depending on how old they are they may stretch down to the knee.
                There are 2 types of people in the world...
                Really stupid people who think they are smart
                and
                Really smart people who think they are smart.

                  Blow them up real big and let em dry.

                  Make sure you spit and rinse afterward though!

                      my first response is EEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!

                      my second response is to treat the scrotums like you would hide.

                            I know that each tribe has different scrotum traditons, but, i have a question.
                            Boxxers, Briefs, or free and easy?

                              If these have come from calves, they aren't going to be that big anyway. I think you want to be working with the bull's--:)
