shed lambing
a system of indoor lambing for ewes which normally run at pasture so that the lambs have protection against the inclemency of the weather and where close observation can be maintained over every ewe. The ewes are brought in when they are individually on the point of lambing and moved out as soon as the ewe-lamb bond is established and the lamb is vigorous, usually 24 hours.
shearing shed
contains a shearing 'board' supplied with a number of 'stands' which are locations for shearing machines. The sheep are shorn on the 'board' and are pushed out through small doors down chutes into counting pens where they are held until a sufficient group is accumulated. In the shed the sheep to be shorn are held in catching pens. The shed is usually large enough to hold several hundred sheep overnight so that there will be some dry sheep for the morning. The shorn wool is classed and packed into bales in the shed which is usually high off the ground; the droppings fall through the slatted floor.
shed sheet
standard recording medium for dairy cow reproductive data—a structured cardboard poster pinned on the wall of the milking shed. Replaced in some sheds by a computer terminal.

A. I am not sure how they trigger the manic episodes as I have not gone through any research indicating any clear reasons to me. But I am sure on the lines of personal experiences with my bipolar daughter that they do trigger her episodes. Especially when she is short of sleep her manic episodes starts. Medicines help her keep calm and to get good sleep. I feel that your son didn’t get the required amount of sleep due to his vacations or would have stressed himself on a high scale. His medicines were also not benefitting him…may be he could have missed on his medicines. Just take care of him and help him avoid all triggers.
