More goat meat again

A friend of ours who owns a farm had some wild goats which he wanted to get rid of. Apparently a goat can eat as much as a fully grown bull, so competition with his cattle for the grass, particularly at this time of the year, is not wanted. Hence the need to get rid of the goats. Also they taste quite nice! (similar to mutton).
So last night Graham came home with 3 goat carcasses which are now hanging. They hang as with game to improve the flavour (and texture?) of the meat. Then there will be the big job of cutting up into portions, and washing, wrapping and freezing.
What with our stock of lamb meat, this should keep us going for a while. Now we (that's the royal we, I really mean Graham) just need to "knock off" some of the under-producing (in terms of egg laying) chickens.
