Little Lamb Lot

DSCF9536 1 copy
This is a temporary lot set up to sell lambs for a religious holiday celebration, somewhat along the lines of fireworks lots for the 4th of July or Christmas tree lots in December. Ramadan is when all Muslims fast during the daylight hours for a month. When Ramadan ends, there is a celebration which last for several days, when families get together. Lambs are sold to customers for slaughter. The meat is then shared with family, friends, and those less fortunate. Lamb is a very popular meat for celebrations in Saudi Arabia.

    Interesting how you thought to compare it to Christmas tree lots and fireworks tents!
    Every Id a few Muslim men from Little Rock would come to Heifer Ranch to select a lamb. I was a volunteer in Livestock there, so I’d have to catch the male lamb and watch while they slaughtered it.
