As you can see from this photo, Zelda is not wearing her sheep suit. It took her not even a whole day to get her leg caught in the neck hole. Luckily I noticed it and we got her leg back where it belonged and I put some extra stitches in her jacket to make it a bit tighter.
A few hours later, Jon came to my studio and told me that Zelda was stuck in her sheep suit. I went into the pasture and saw that she had somehow gotten both her back legs out of the straps and the suit was hanging around her neck with her front leg stuck in the strap for the back leg. I walked to her speaking softly and she stumbled towards me. She was very patient and trusting as I got her leg unstuck and lifted the sheep suit over her head. All the “big old basting ” stitches were blown out.
That was enough for me. If Zelda doesn’t want to wear her sheep suit, Zelda doesn’t have to wear her sheep suit. Seeing what happened to her, I was tempted to free the rest of the sheep from their suits. But when I looked at them grazing comfortably in their jackets, not trying to take them off, I could see that what Zelda did isn’t the norm. The other sheep are behaving like sheep, I think Zelda might be part donkey.
