I always wondered about ramshackle and where it came from.

There was a pub up in the downs that used to have a night when they served shackle which was very popular. It was stew by another name really.

I am wondering of ramshackle was what you made when your breeding ram was finally totally shagged out and no use to anybody, woolly or not. A mess of old mutton that probably needed boiling for half a lifetime with whatever veg you could find to put in with it.
