Don't worry, you haven't lost your marbles yet.  Sheep suffer from several diseases that target their neurological system.  If your sheep is acting a little crazy, it may be suffering from one of these common neurological diseases:

Tetanus

Polioencephalomalacia

Listeriosis

If you believe your animals are suffering from any of these diseases, contact your veterinarian immediately!!
