I have told this story more than once, but even now--probably 50 years later--I am still unhappy about the "disappearance" of two sheep that I grew fond of and named as a child on the farm. When I told my aunt I had looked everywhere for them that morning and asked where they were, she gave me a pat answer such as, "I told you we couldn't keep them". I think I again asked where they were and got some phony-sounding reply about selling them for wool.
I was never in 4-H. I still view that aunt, who raised me, as my lifetime role model for the most part, but there was something terribly "off" about otherwise kind and very Christian people killing or having animals killed, IMHO. I know that it simply stemmed from how they were raised.
