Yes, I never made the sheep connection, image-wise. The sheep scene comes earlier in the film than the remembered hate killing. But the angle of the limbs, from memory, seems to be the same. A very interesting, subtle connection. Mariole has a really good eye for connecting images. I once saw a comparison she did at the K-D messageboard for the thread that talks about EW as an actor, parallelling shots from his earlier films with shots from LotR. Sometimes her tone was droll, but the comparison shots were really revealing.

I love the tenderness of this scene, too. It almost reminds me of a mother and child. Jack's tone of concerned attentiveness, and his careful, soothing touch as he cradles Ennis (with his closed eyes), reminds me of mothers comforting and reassuring their children when they are exhausted or troubled. It's beautifully, beautifully done, and (I think) incredibly daring. Far more than the actual sex scene. It's really a naked scene, especially for a "macho" man to do.

I love your description of the tenderness between Jack and Ennis. This scene grabs my heart; to see Ennis bashfully present himself to Jack, saying so much to him without uttering a single word. And Jack understands what Ennis is trying to say, and reassures him in the way you described. Or like a horse with a "low startle point", he is "steadying" Ennis, emotionally. The way they open up to each other is one of the most beautiful things that I have ever seen.

You put that well. And the comparison to Jack's quieting horses is so good. I don't think we ever see Ennis again behave in such a vulnerable, humble manner in the film.
