Hehe...well, problem with killing a cow is that has ALOT of meat and if only a few people are eating it, it's still a bit of a waste...but yea, you're right, I'm mostly fine with it as long as there's no cruelty, and we don't keep too many.

Also, there's always the chance that they'll become attached to the animals and won't be able to kill and butcher them. Wink


I'm realizing that now.  I'd be liable to name the animals and I don't think I could stand to eat Suzy.

must name pig: BACON!!!

My girlfriend want to have a sheep or two so she can make her own yarn.  She knows how to sheer sheep, spin yarn, dye yarn, and knit.   And she says that if we market what she makes as Organically raised, hand spun, hand dyed (with organically grown plants), and hand knit (by a local artist) it will sell for a load of money.

She's right. And I've done a little spinning, but forgot almost everything, so with a little refreshing I can help. Might even be able to get my hands on the schematics and designs for a loom that lets you switch between 100 different threads via foot pedals if I can figure out where my mom put that.

I wouldn't mind keeping two or more sheep. We could look into other animals, too.
