A prayer was said.
The sheep's throat was slit, and the blood drained.

A small hole was cut into its hind leg, through which air was blown, helping to separate the skin from the body.
The carcass was hung from a tree, facilitating the skinning.
The skin and the small intestines were sent to the mosque as an offering. Each skin can fetch about 70 reminbi on the market.
The rest of the insides and part of the meat were eaten by the family. The rest of the meat were given to relatives, friends, and the needy.
