Bonding with sheep
The sheep are a bit harder. They're more nervous and we have to trick them to get them in the pen. We flip them onto their backs and most of them stay very still for the trimming. If they're kept on their backs too long they start to squirm. I'm the holder while Susan did the manicures, no polish. We did, however, do some aromatherapy with some special oil that's supposed to help their digestion. I think that's what she told me. It smelled really good. We put it on their ankles and tummies. I did the last 2 trimmings. I sang songs or talked to them. I'm sure they were soothed by my angelic voice. Susan may not have enjoyed it as much but she didn't tell me to quit.
