    I have a 3 1/2 month old lamb that is spider legged. We need to butcher it does any one have any suggestions on dong this at home ourselves? my husband is a hunter so he is familer with gutting a deer. I just am not sure on how to cut it up or if you need a meat saw. any help would be appriciated.

    At that age, just a very sharp knife or cleaver would probably do.

    No you shouldn't need a meat saw the lamb's half catriladge at this age anyway. You could gut and skin him and then rost him like a pig on a spit.

    Sounds like momma and dady need to go in the freezer too.
