Various full cycle multipack vol one
When it comes time for Mother to finally have their baby, she and the poet retreat to his upstairs office, which is basically the Garden of Eden/Heaven. She gives birth but refuses to let the poet take the baby to the throng of onlookers downstairs. Unfortunately, as sleep deprivation gets the best of her, the poet snatches the baby from her arms and gives it to the people. The baby, in this instance, is Jesus Christ. Those familiar with the New Testament knew what was coming next—the poet gives his baby to the people, who then kill it. Mother is horrified, even moreso when the people start eating the baby while crying (. consuming the body of Christ as in communion, during which we remember Jesus’ sacrifice for our sins).

However, the length of
a sheep's productive lifetime tends to be much less. This is because
a ewe's productivity usually peaks between 3 and 6 years
of age and begins to decline after the age of 7. As a result,
most ewes are removed from a flock before they would reach their natural life expectancy.
It is also necessary to get rid of older ewes in order to make
room for younger ones. The younger animals are usually genetically superior to the older ones.
In harsh environments (. where forage is sparse), ewes are usually culled at a younger age because once their teeth start to wear and break down, it becomes more difficult for them to maintain their body condition and consume enough forage to feed their babies. It is possible for a ewe to be productive past 10 years of age, if she is well-fed and managed and stays healthy and sound.
The approximate age of a sheep can be determined by examining their upper incisor teeth. At birth, lambs have eight baby (or milk) teeth or temporary incisors arranged on their lower jaw. They don't have any teeth on their top jaw, only a dental pad.
At approximately one year of age, the central pair of baby teeth is replaced by a pair of permanent incisors. At age 2, the second pair is replaced by permanent incisors. At 3 and 4 years, the third and fourth pairs of baby teeth are replaced.
At approximately four years of age, a sheep has a full mouth of teeth. As it ages past four, the incisor teeth will start to spread, wear, and eventually break. When a ewe has lost some of her teeth, she's called a "broken mouth" ewe. When she's lost all her teeth, she's called a "gummer."
A sheep with no incisor teeth can still survive because it uses mostly its molars for chewing feed. However, it will have a harder time grazing, especially short vegetation.
A sheep that has rolled over onto its back is called a "cast" sheep. It may not be able to get up without assistance. This happens most commonly with short, stocky sheep with full fleeces on flat terrain. Heavily pregnant ewes are most prone. Cast sheep can become distressed and die within a short period of time if they are not rolled back into a normal position. When back on their feet, they may need supported for a few minutes to ensure they are steady.
Vital signs are measures of various physiological statistics. A sheep's vital signs can help determine if it is sick or in distress.
