Although I don't give anything up for lent we do celebrate Mardi Gras. [When we were kids my dad always gave up smoking. We HATED lent cause he was crabby the whole time, we couldn't wait for Easter.] We help a friend do a party every year and have a big cast iron pot of gumbo, crayfish cornbread and King cake. There are lots of beads around.

I have heard of pure breds going into the thousands of dollars. We've been told that buyers come from the cities to the sale barn to buy goats up for meat for Middle Easterners. Goat meat is the most common/popular meat in the world.
