Sheep

The sign for sheep looks like you are shearing a sheep. You put your non-dominant hand out and across in front of your body, then you make your dominant hand into shears by extending your index and middle fingers.

To perform the sign, open and close your middle and index fingers while moving the shears along your non-dominant hand, as if you were operating the shears. It's as if you're cutting the wool along the sheep's back.
