Do NOT eat this any sheep over 3 years of age that have suffered with mastitis require serious testing.tasting
But if you message me your details ie location contact number im sure i could do all the testing tasting for you. :innocent:
Sorry but i cant offer any real advice but i love mutton

Personally I've never heard of the above Happy Larry - Sorry if I'm wrong but if she was like that she'd go in with the Barren ewes & off to slaughter or the cull markets as people will still pay good money for her there if your worried about her tasting funny - although its ideal for her to go with at least another animal whichever way - taste wise possibly slow roast & stew / casserole the meat or if worse comes to wear she'll feed the pets for a while if you've got cats & dogs x

No, I suspect , the same as you , that it was a joke.  :innocent:  what you're forgetting is the fact that some people have to have an appointment before they will see a joke,  ;D  (that was one by the way) or ,in extreme cases , a humour transplant . Donor organs are rare. :D

Lets face it: if you sold it as a cull it'd end up in a kebab anyway. Might as well be the maker of that kebab. :yum:

Shame you didn't benefit.  I would have thought the fact that they wanted to buy it suggests it is good meat to eat.
