n.— «The only foolproof technique we know of is called hide-grafting, which incorporates another procedure known as slime-grafting. The combined practice entails confining the ewe in a hurdle, then skinning her dead lamb (the sooner after its death the better)…and dressing an orphan in that jacketlike covering so the mother will assume it to be her own.» —“Living Through Lambing” by Elora McKenzie Mother Earth News Jan.-Feb., 1982.
