Hello,
I was inspired by the lessons on 23rd Psalm I found here. I'd like to include how a shepherd would have cared for an injured sheep... what kind of ointment, etc. I've searched google and ask jeeves under ancient vetrinary practices, ancient rome, hebrew shepherds, ancient medicines, bible medicines... no luck so far. I think aloe vera was probably used, but I'd like more info. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks!

This is just what you are looking for. It uses Psalm 23 to provide the topics as it explains ancient shepherd practises - care, feeding, finding, tending, etc. It is very interesting and insightful to learn what a faithful shepherd will do to care for beloved sheep.
