Lamb can be very unpalatable if overcooked or held too long.  However, from 
an Ansteorran point of view, it is more likely that cost is an issue. 
Bone-in lamb, runs two to three times the price of boneless beef roast. 
I've noted that the feasts where lamb was served were in places where the 
lamb was price roughly equal to beef.
