Please help: I'm struggling to understand what you want to see when you say 'caring for...' and how to show it photographically.  

Are you looking for photos of the caretaker interacting with the sheep or doing the daily check bb activities for example?

I could share a photo of me shearing as caring for the ewe but sheep don't particularly look pregnant so I'm struggling to show caring for a pregnant ewe.  The only visible activity that comes to mind is putting them into a lambing pen (which not everybody does) and often happens on the morning of lambing.

Would these photos convey caring for the ewe and one lamb?

Good question...  I think the "proof" could be a few sentences about how you care for them and some pictures to show that they seem to have a happy home.
