it is attached to one of the front legs, if you run your hand down the leg u find there are 2 leg bones side by side under the skin, i think it is attached to the shoulder but its hard to tell without an xray

she also has a deformed hind leg that is useless,

she gets around well enough though!

butchers could sell an extra 'leg of lamb' though!

nice she has a home to look forward to...

Am I just bias, or is she a real looker?
