It worked for me:
This is the first I am hearing of lambs being used for coats. I've seen lambskin lining, but never seen a full coat.
The video doesn't really surprise me though aside from the premature lambs which I have never heard of before. I don't wear fur for many reasons, the animals being one of them and as far as I can tell, this is pretty much the same as other animals being used for fur.

Many countries and cultures do things differently then here doesn't make them wrong at all. In the U.S. We slaughter 1000's of bred cattle every day.

I think the main objection is not to what they do in uzbekistan but an objection to America and Europe giving the demand for the pelts. It seems to me that it's not a cultural thing, but a buissiness that they are profiting off of due to american and european fashion.

Very well could be its a big world and most countries import and export products.

Yes, I realize this.
My point was that this practice isn't really a cultural thing like the title "sacrifice" may imply.

Not to get into the middle of a fray but is there a difference between that and what is done to produce shoes, wallets, handbags, saddles, etc. Does it make a difference in the quality of life if the animal is 3 days or 3 years old when it is butchered?

No, I don't think so iridehorses.
Personally, the only leather I use is my horse equipment. I just don't like it in general. I don't use fur products but I'm not going to pour blood on someone who does. I don't really see a differance between the lambs and cattle being used for leather.
Honestly, I am more against animal products for fashion than food. But like I said, I am guilty of having a leather saddle.

Question though: Is the leather used to make wallets, shoes, etc off of cattle killed for food or are they raised like the lambs for leather? I really have no idea about that.
