Who knew sheep had tails?

We got our little lamby completely intact--balls, tail and all. Seeing a live action sheep tail is pretty rare. Sheep farmers usually cut them off for hygienic reasons. I have never met a sheep tail before and I was surprised at how much emotion they convey like dog tails. I thought they would be more like horse tails, somewhere between animated and expressive. Sheep wag their tails when they're happy. Here is our sheepy when he is happiest, drinking his bottle, for your viewing pleasure.
