aka - why shibas are ridiculous.

I was SO excited to find a bag of chunk, raw, bone in goat meat at a market. So excited. I took pictures because the dogs seemed excited, too:

Slightly freezer burnt, but still lookin' good.

A little bit about goat:
Some interesting facts about goat meat:
Goats are the No. 1 red meat in the world. It is low in fat and cholesterol. According to nutritional facts supplied by the USDA, one 3-ounce serving of goat meat contains 122 calories, 2.58 grams of fat, 23 grams of protein and 3.3 milligrams of iron. The same amount of chicken has 120 calories, 3.5 grams of fat and 0.5 milligrams of iron. The same serving of beef has 245 calories, 16 grams of fat, 23 grams of protein and 2.9 milligrams of iron, while pork has 310 calories, 24 grams of fat, 21 grams of protein and 2.7 milligrams of iron, and lamb provides 235 calories, 16 grams of fat, 22 grams of protein and 1.4 milligrams of iron.

After packaging up most into freezer bags (portioning) I gave a smidgen to each dog, for a taste:

Which did seem to go over quite well, besides Tsuki trying to bury it, but did eat it (she got the marrow):

Then comes the real test - the actual meal of goat.


More consideration:


Needless to say, he got a bath, and the goat was put away until their morning meal.
Which, again, was not successful. They just stared at it.

Tsuki chose her turkey neck over the goat:

So, perhaps goat stew for the dogs tonight? Or I can suck it up and buy a meat grinder, mix the goat with tripe or something irresistible...
