    I might be getting 2 lambs this weekend if one of them makes it long enough. I was told he has a broken esophagus and I was wondering if that's something that is fixable or if his days are numbered....?

    That does not sound good to me, if it's completely broken he won't survive much longer. Are you sure that the esophagus is what they're referring to? And sorry about this one, but why are you buying a lamb in that condition, if not for immediate butcher?
