The Polite Ewe

Ah hello there, can I just stop you for a minute? I seem to have got my baby stuck in that tree trunk behind me and I can't get her out. Would you be so kind as to help me? I don't have much strength anymore since I became all bone. They told me the drugs would work but my muscles atrophied and my skin fell away. It was my last chance to be a ewe. And when he snuck into the barn that night, I let it happen. I know cross-species relationships are frowned upon in these parts but he was gentle. So gentle he cried. Sad, really. But there you go. And look what happened. My beautiful baby girl came into the world. The problem was that she shot out of my bones, what with me not having any skin. Shot out like a loose stool. And straight into the tree trunk over there. She hasn't cried so I think she's ok. Would you be a darling and help me?
