People stopped asking us where our meat came from. We would answer much like, oh: "Samual" or "Wellington" or such.
I need to remember, next year, to call or e-mail you when WUOT does their pet pledge drive -- their criterion is, "If it has a name, it's a pet", and I would feel delightfully chaotic making a pledge in the names of your goats.
This one is Target, and this one is Curried, and this one is Chops.
I've never cooked goat. Come to think of it, I don't think I've eaten it either.
Well, Samual and Wellington were beef, not goat. Bubba Tut was goat.
It is quite similar to venison, though as I recall that isn't often something eaten locally except in restaurants. Export crop for you folk. We went for a very long time without eating our goat, because what we had we might of eaten, we were selling. Not an export crop, but a cash one.
Also, this brings a whole new layer of meaning to Pratchett's "Stoo with meat: 5p, Stoo with named meat: 10p"
