It always amazes me living in a rural place how ignorant people are of livestock.
Ewe are usually pussies that would have a heart attack if you looked at it funny, a Ewe with it's lamb will fuck you of you look at the lamb funny.
My uncle is a sheep farmer, his neighbor's dog killed his sheep and he begged my uncle not to shoot the dog.
The compromise was the neighbor would pay for the dead sheep and they locked the dog in a small shed with a ewe and her lamb.
Dog was terrified of sheep from then on.
