They butchers near me probably all know you by now Bev  ;D

If you want goat - where I live is the place to get it....  Loki loves the goat bones actually - they are a nice size... I get them to bone a leg for me - chop up the meat and put the bones separate.  Then loki gets the meat for dinners and bones during the day.  Or I buy the curry goat which is little bits of meat and bone and he has that for breakfast - he had it today  ;D

As well as all my butchers in London near my house (there are loads...) I also have a fab butcher in Suffolk that gives me great big bags of bones for free - real mixtures of stuff including racks of ribs, big marrow bones, little lamb bones etc.  I buy our meat there too... 

ETS: Bev - Loki won't eat Mackeral...  he hates it... is the one thing he won't eat  if he gets it for breakfast then eat misses breakfast and won't eat it  ::)  so I've stopped giving it to him.  He even let Dottie eat all of it in suffolk once - he prefers not to eat than to eat Mackeral....

Emmy hates any fish that is raw, she will rather not eat too ::)  Blu takes a while but then will eat it.  The only time she eats it if't cooked or out the tin.  I did put the raw fish in a blender and blasted it all up and she ate it then :-\

Mine get so used to certain meats and bones when they have something new, like at xmas butcher gave me duck and goose, they wouldn't touch it ::)  took me ages to convince them to eat it ::) fussy what nots :D

Lisa did you feed it raw?  I gave Loki game mix for dinner ages ago and he wasn't that interested  :o - so I heated it up (not cooked - just slightly browned).  Then he loved it - so now he will eat it raw - I just had to have it a bit warmed through the first couple of times...  He gets game mix quite often now cos our butchers do a deal on it  ;D

I know Bev! it could only be mine ::)

Yes, it was a whole duck and carcasses of goose.  But they were like that with rabbit at first until I cooked it!

They soon ate when they realised they weren't getting anything else :D

Kizzie has had her first bone today and loved it ;D  Will ask for more bones tomorrow when I go to get my meat, it was free last time so hoping that is the norm. :D :)
