Absolutely not. In the shepherding business, a “lamb” is any sheep that has not reached breeding age. Sheep mature quickly – their lifespan is only about 7 years – so when a “lamb” goes to market, it weighs about 100 pounds and looks like a full grown sheep. Our sheep are never confined and all of our market lambs live their whole lives on green pasture.
