Apparently its a common thing with lamb, so goat doesn't seem too far off either?
Hey, maybe it wasn't lamb meat in that jerky. Just sayin' ...

I served some of the goat meat on top of their regular food tonight, and they gobbled it up. :-)

Rua, that's hilarious! Juno gave that goat leg a proper burial! :-)

Zeeva, no they were scared. Dexter is pretty confident, so he usually just looks at me, and once I tell him that it's ok, he calms down. Lola was hiding behind the couch. The only time she does that, is when there's an evil thunderstorm outside. :-)

Apparently it's not that uncommon from what I've read, but nobody seems to know why.

But, lamb and goat does smell awful to me, so I don't blame them. :-)

As Shepherds, maybe they're hard wired to protect lamb and sheep and as a result, have an adversity to eating them...who knows For lack of a better reason, that's the best I can come up with!
