It is perferred to use feet from lamb but you can definitley use goat or cow. But of course you have to make sure it is a younger lamb, goat, or cow so the boe are not too large. If the butcher you go to is familiar with the dish you can mention what oyu care making and they should get you the proper item They are also called trotters. Make sure you ask for lamb/goat trotters with some fat/meat on them cut into medium sized pieces.
