Ah, gotcha.

We usually don't make the distinction on Pascha. Usually, I think, it's goat, but we tend to call it lamb.

THAT is the connection.
You have completely lost me Tony-san :?

A young person of the female gender was the possessor of a small immature ruminant of the genus Ovis, whose outermost covering reflected all wavelengths of visible light with a luminosity equal to that of a mass of naturally occurring microscopically crystalline water .....

You do?

I have bought rack of lamb when living in the USA (ridiculously expensive) and assumed that what I was paying for was the meat of a juvenile domestic sheep :shock:

So in the USA lamb can mean goat just as mutton means goat in India?
Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

Must be something in the background.

I think it *is* kid being served (at least often in the Greek tradition) but... damn, I just don't know. I assume that in England and Ireland and so on, sheep are way more prevalent than goats for farming, so the transfer from goats to sheep for Paschal munching. After all, the big JC had a whole shepherd motif going on (and there was that whole bit about separating sheep from goats). ;)
