To dream of shearing them, denotes a season of profitable enterprises will shower down upon you. To see flocks of sheep, there will be much rejoicing among farmers, and other trades will prosper. To see them looking scraggy and sick, you will be thrown into despair by the miscarriage of some plan, which promised rich returns. To eat the flesh of sheep, denotes that ill-natured persons will outrage your feelings. See Lamb and Ram.
