recipe deal breakers are lamb, brains, and veal.

we use to raise sheep for wool and many a lamb
were borne and raised by my children. my children
raised several lambs orphaned by their mothers,
feeding them with baby bottles.

my grandfather and uncle both were dairy farmers
in wisconsin. many a summer i helped on the farms.
help pull many a calf from a cow having a little
trouble giving birth. i feed many a calf a bucket
of their mother's milk in a nibbled milk bottle
or metal bucket.
