    Hi,
    I got a new sheep from my brother two days ago. We have plenty of food and water there for her, but she doesn't seem to be eating or drinking anything. So as far as I know, she hasn't had any water for about 48 hours, and I'm beginning to get really worried. Any suggestions or advice?

    Maybe I didn't include enough information before. She is a Barbados black belly. I know she's lonely, as we haven't gotten the goats to keep her company yet. She's also probably shaken up from the trip and being alone for about a week before that. He didn't have any other sheep. She was in with his cattle, which were sold. That is why she came to me instead of going with them.

    Any advice on how to get her to drink would be greatly appreciated,
