My son and D-I-L posted pictures of a couple little lambs to their Facebook page. They had just bought them at a 4-H (or FFA?) fair. (For those of us not in the US or familiar with agricultural culture, these are clubs where young folk raise animals to compete with each other knowing that the animals are destined to a life of laying eggs, providing milk or being slaughtered for the table.) All of their friends oohed and ahhed about how cute they were and what good pets they would make until my D-I-L explained that they were not bought to be pets.
They were delicious!
Not sure I could raise them myself and then eat them, though I had no difficulty with the chickens and turkeys my son raised, even though I had a chance to play with them.
