And, for once, Celeste agrees. Dressing up dogs for Halloween and taking fifty five thousands photographs should be a prosecutable offense.
In other news, here are some sheep from the sanctuary. I tried to get them to stop grazing and face me and the camera, but their butts would not move. You can see that the two sheep on the right (Gwen and Lenny) have tails. The two sheep on the left (Alice & Virginia) have had theirs docked, generally done with a cauterizing knife and no pain relief (ouch). Unlike their wild brethren, most domestic sheep have long, sometimes very woolly tails. If you can manage a good hygiene program, like we do at the sanctuary, maggots are not a problem (in fact, the only sheep who has had problems with maggots was a docked merino ewe). Maggots can become an issue in the fine-wool breeds, like merinos, who have extra folds of skin where moisture and maggots can thrive.
Anyways. Sheep butts!
