The sign for "sheep"
is made by forming the letter "v" with your right hand. Your left forearm is extended with your hand closed, palm downward.
Put your right hand on top of your left, and move up the arm. Open and close your right fingers.
NOTES: This sign uses a double movement. Bring the right hand down onto the top of the left forearm, clip a bit of hair (bring the index and middle finger together), then withdraw the right hand, open up the "scissors," bring your right hand down onto a spot slightly further up the left forearm and clip another swatch of imaginary hair from your imaginary sheep.
Note: add the sign for "small" if you are talking about a lamb.
