 I offered him money he said dont be daft and told me to pop back next week ;D

just drove past my normal butcher, popped in on the off chance and he cut one huge shoulder(I think) in half, charged me a 1 ::) oh well they got a couple each to keep them going over the weekend :)

Sue it's a shame I'm not seeing you this weekend!  I could have brought you a whole bag of bones up! ::)  Will remember next time ;D  just been to mine today and had a bin liner full of lamb ribcages, chicken wings and carcassess as well as loads of what I call 'Honey bones' :D

Suz, don't go to the butchers next week! I have a carrier bag FULL of Honey bones so you'd better have room in your freezer!!

Can I ask, are the lamb's spine ok for them to eat, have a few in my freezer and never been sure to give them to them :-\  would that include as a meal's worth rather than a chewy bone?

Thats mainly what they sell at morrisons, i've got a freezer full of bones.  I've got a bit of an obsession!  My OH always exclaims 'more bones!' but i said he wouldnt complain if it was a big bag of balls!!  ::)

i got all these plus a few more as Gracie has had some, for 1



I have some nice little soft lamb ribs for a puppy  ;)

The shoulder blades, have lots of them would they be ok for a brekkie? am thinking not enought meat/fat on them?

I think we should post pics of all the diff bones we have, and Bev Val etc can tell us what bone and what animal  ;D >:D

My butcher in Lancashire does 13.62 Kg / 30lb from 5 - 8 for the following:

Frozen Beef Tripe Mince
Frozen Chicken Mince
Frozen Lamb Mince
Frozen Beef & Tripe Mince
Frozen Beef Mince

I buy the frozen mince beef which I use in their home cooked diet, as I don't give mine bones I have never asked what they do with them.
