Michael, I am so sorry you are having to go through this.
Coryne psuedotuberculosis is the bacterium that causes the disease
Caseous Lymphadenitis (CL) in sheep. There is no cure. See
and other sources.
An abscess on a sheep's jaw/throat is commonly the first symptom to
appear with CL. But it is very easy to confuse with bottle jaw and
milk goiter. I've read that CL abscesses are hard whereas bottle jaw
and milk goiter lumps are soft. What do the abscesses on your sheep
look and feel like?

Thanks for everyone's advice. The Vet came and did a necropsy on Marley:
Coryne psuedotuberculosis. All through his body.
I have had a few of the abscesses on my sheeps neck or jaw before and
was aware this was contagious, but was not that aware of how
devastating it could be.. Now I am.
