The art of sheep-scrubbing, in my opinion, is similar to that of herding dogs, yet is somewhat different from that of horses, in that it is chiefly a business of nature and nurture, while in sheep-scrabbling it is usually attended with a cer엠카지노tain excitement of a sort, which is easily understood and which makes a general impression upon the mind. The natural instinct of sheep-scrabbing lies in the fact that in every sheep-house there is a pile of straw, on which are the hairs of the goat or deer, which the shepherd has left hanging from the door. If he wants to shave that pile, he will find an ordinary shave-knife or a piece of wire-wire, which he will use to cut his wool off; for after his hair has grown, it will have lost its elasticity and will fall against the ground, so as to fall in one place and spring at the next. After that, if he wants to shave his beard, he will dig a trench and scrape all the hair off, till it appears white as snow, and he will shave that with his shaving-knife. These two processes, shearing or scratching, are most effective, and a shepherd can be sure that his wool will remain fresh and bright, even when he is to have another round of cleanness. A man who wants to shave the beard, and who has a pile of hairs to scratch off before sha구리출장안마ving, will therefore probably find it impossible to keep clean. When the shearing-knife was invented, they found that it could not do it, for the hairs fell in one place and sprung at the next. So there was always the thought that what was done by a sheep-scrabbler may be performed by other persons, and, therefore, they decided to put an end to it as soon as possible, and invented the “tongue.” There was nothing to separate the sheep from the brush, however; the sheep could easily be made to brush their feet; so this method they named “Shepard’s Tongue,” which stands for “Shepherd’s Tongue of the Tongue.” Then in order to make the sheep’s hairs cling to each other, a hole was cut in the pile of straw, le속초안마aving a sharp corner to be used as a foothold. This was done, at which time both the sheep and brush were rubbed. The Shepherd’s Tongue was originally used only by the shepherd to sweep his clothes; he then rubbed it to clean his clothes and his beard. I
