See, I live near Winchester, VA.

I was riding in the car to go to a lesson.

I saw a shirtless, overweight redneck walking a sheep on a leash.

Eating goats is the least of our concern. XDDD

I do love goat cheese. I'd like to *try* goat sometime. I'm open to anything as long as they tell me what it is AFTER I swallow! A lot of restaurants around here sell goat dishes.. I might have to close my eyes and take a bite.

Though.. I shudder to think of that particular sheep on someone's plate. D:

Haha! Wegmans in MD and VA is like a tourist attraction. I stay as far away as possible when I am there. Too many standing around gawking. And at the holidays...well nothing short of scary.

You sure that redneck was going to eat the sheep? **Shudder** Perhaps they were on their honeymoon!

Guess I eat at the wrong places....have not seen the goat on the menu, but now I will look closer!

I'm also from Northern Virginia, and I can honestly say I've never heard anyone say "I could really go for some goat!" I've never had it, and I can't think of anyone I know that has told me they've had it, not even my philapino relatives. Goat cheese, on the other hand, is the most delicious thing to put on sandwichs, salads, pitas...mmm.. I do hear of sheep/lamb being eaten though, but that could be because I heard my parents talking about it when they had sheep.

When I was a teenager, my boss at Domino's had two pet sheep, and she led them around on a leash. They're very sweet if you socialize with them. Although the shirtless overweight redneck sounds a little weird!

And also, YES WEGMANS!!! I love that store! Everything about them is amazing. Don't avoid Wegman's, visit there as much as possible! The sushi, the sandwich counter, the cakes, the muffins, the bagels...I could really go for one of their bagels...and their meat is sooo good. And their coffee shop makes such good low cal frappes...and their candy aisle is amazing!

Franknbeans, there's one in Leesburg now, which I think is close to where you will be ;)

We just got a Wegman's about 10 minutes from us :) very nice.

Goat meat is more of a cultural kind of thing - Americans just don't eat it. I will :) I'm looking at a goat from breeding market kids as we speak.

I've never even tasted goat meat. Would still be interesting experience to try it.

It isn't common here in Finland. At least it isn't here around my small corners, cannot be sure bigger cities tho.

Wegmans is the most amazing store, I love it, and shop there when I need some really nice (rarely, like once a year when my lovely but snooty mother visits)

I am English, but have lived in the US for about 10 years now. In England, lamb is common, and frankly my favorite meat. I believe the goat is most commonly eaten by people from the middle east, but I have not tried it myself.

As I said, I love lamb, but could not eat my own pet, or an animal I am used to dealing with on a day to day basis. I would never try horse meat, so there is an issue, how do I make any sense as I enjoy meat, but could not eat my own pets. If I were to own my own lamb or calf, I could never eat it, but I will eat someone elses. As I have no desire to become a veggie, maybe I am better not thinking about it, and buying my nicely prepackaged stuff from the store. But I think I am a hypocrite.

Ok from reading this I'm getting the vibe that lamb isnt common in the US? Wow, I always thought it was totally norm to eat lamb! We have it like almost every week and every butcher/groccery store I have ever been in over here sells lamb.

It's as common as beef O.o

POeople just don't eat lamb. I do, it's my favorite meat. (: but the first time I tried it was at a friend's Greek Easter. Another thing that isn't too common is duck.. I tried that about a week ago.. Not my poultry of choice.

Wow like everyone here eats lamb O.o

As for goat meat.. I plan on trying it eventually but we will have to buy our own as I have never seen it for sale at the butchers etc.

Yes, ptvintage, as a matter of a fact Wegmans is right down the street in Leesburg. I still like my NY store much better, and there are no police directing all the traffic around the holidays!

Lamb is pretty common, but not everyone likes the taste, from what I know, we love it, it is on the menu at restaurants, quite a bit more acceptable than goat, from what I know.

Lamb is a pretty common product in the US. I personally do not like it, but it is easily purchased at restaurants and stores.
