Movie identification: sheep balloons?

What movie did I see in school in the late 80's that featured sheep being punctured with a huge needle-ish poker thing to save the sheep by releasing internal gas resulting from grazing on the wrong kind of grass? And does all that really happen?

Old Timey Name That I Lost

I'm looking for the old time name of a job that I know one of my ancestors did for several generations. It's a weird sounding name for a person that makes sheep gates out of hazel or willow hurdles. I knew it a couple of years ago and have since lost it from my memory and bookmarks. The name was obscure enough that I had no inkling that it was a 'sheepgate maker'(portable sheep fencing) until I googled it and found a reference in a piece or blog about Victorian era occupations. I remember laughing at what it was. [more inside]

Shoot The Sheep!

Help me, oh wise MeFites, to find this lost game of my youth. I'm looking for a board game, from the late 70s/early 80s, that had cattle ranching as a theme. As you went around the board, you could buy ranches, then buy and sell cattle. There may have been an element of driving the cattle to market too. The detail that stands out the most is the sheep ranch. If you landed there, and another player had sheep on it, you could shoot them. My sister and I both remember playing with our dad, and all shouting, "Shoot the sheep!".

Lost Navajo Word

The last Tony Hillerman novel, Sacred Pig, used a Navajo term that translates into english as "She who tells a sheep which blade of grass to eat". This Navajo word would be useful for me to know. I have tried to find it by scanning the novel with no success. Does anyone know what this word is with the correct pronunciation?
