    Good sheep comes out a good flock

    Dunnit

    #2
    My favorite sheep was kind of a loner. We called him ghost butt, because he literally had a dead ass that was full of maggots. If this existed now I don't think I could have even handled it, but I was like 8 and I just assumed what my parents said was ok was ok.

    It's aweful to observe indeed. As basically part of the sheep is being eaten alive.. But.. there are very effective ways to get rid of those maggots
    I was baffled as a kid (when helping my dad with treating maggot infested sheeps) to see the maggots quickly crawl out of and abandon the flesh of those sheep after applying some real effective medicine on their skin.. Ingrained in my brain.

      and now i'm just wondering why we never used any of this medicine. were my parents just monsters or something?

        I assume just oblivious How many sheep did they generally keep? My parents and our family lived off keeping sheep so we had a lot and also had to take professional care of them that way of course.
        There were (are) several kinds of medicine for it. Some to prevent (injection) and some to cure (worked on skin, as in my original example).

        And.... could also be Ghost butt had been really ill, but had recovered (perhaps through a simple antibiotic cure or something), but the wool did fall out afterwards. Pretty common (rarely falls out allover the body, generally just partially). In combi with losing all fat earlier when she was sick it can appear like she still has maggots/is severely ill.. :P

            We only had sheep a couple times. We always had a dozen or two chickens, but in the back field we kind of randomly rotated between a cow or two, two or three pigs, four sheep, or no farm animals. It was never a thing they made a living off of, just something to do because we had a fenced off acre with a shed and I think they felt obligated to use it.

              Well anyway, lots of sheep to take notice of here still (none on my parents property anymore though), and if all skinny looking ones with a bare ass or back because of loosening wool would have maggots a lot of owners would be monsters here But I know that's rarely the case! Just looks similar.

              The black sheep comes from a gang of sheep not a flock of sheep. ?
