Am I supposed to feel guilty?

The sheep in the field at the bottom of my garden are making a hell of a din and looking forlornly at me. This is because their lambs were taken away early this morning, and one of them is now residing in my freezer. Do you think they know?

Yes.

There's a big sign over your house that only they can see, which says "Your little lamb Buttercup is a lifeless corpse, having been stunned to death, and is in this man's freezer" just so's they know which house gets The Dreaded Ovine Curse.

Next question? Wink

I stopped eating lamb 20yrs ago. I saw a real live lamb up close for the first and thought "Can't". And I haven't.

It was seeing a chicken leg on a salad and seeing it for what it actually was, that put me on the road to being a veggie. Smile

I've always liked home reared animals, always nicer knowing that the anima;ls have been reared by yourself (well my dad mostly) and is not some factory farmed animal. One of my friends at school, her family kept goats. The kids helped rear and named the animals, yet you would look in their freezer and see joints labelled as "leg of daizy" etc... heh Smile She and her siblings had such an appreciation for the whole stable to table process.

We keep chickens, rabbits and ducks - all for the table. We rear them ourselves then I kill them, gut them and pluck them (not the rabbits Smile) myself. Never had any temptation to become vegetarian.
On the contrary, I know where they came from and that they had a reasonable life while they were alive - they taste great too!

Shocking. To think that a goat's offspring would betray on its own parents ..

Just let them know they'll have the same fate Smile

Make sure you're well stocked with the aforementioned rosemary and garlic, mint, kebab machine, curry and spices, etc. as you'll need all of that.

In certain countries that would be almost expected Wink
