Contra Costa Live Lamb

MY BH saw a sign on Marsh Creek Road indicating lamb was being offered for sale but neglected to write down any details.

Does anyone know about this?

Many thanks.

      Wally -- are your lambs vegetarian?

      Are you sure it was live? I wonder how many Chowhounds would have the nerve to slaughter a lamb themselves.

        Our teenager won't even eat them because they are too cute. Let alone slaughter them.
        I used to have a boyfriend who would kill things to eat them: quail for Sunday breakfast, a goat for a barbecue. He'd been raised on sheep and cattle ranches and was a skilled butcher. I didn't watch.

          Sorry I wasn't clearer: If you pass Harris Ranch and see a bunch of cattle, you might pursue where you can buy the meat; I meant the same thing about the lamb and assumed that was what the sign meant, but reallly can't say for sure.
