- A specific animal is chosen to be dedicated to a specific diety.
- Purify the animal with juniper incense.
- Sprinkle it with wine.
- Decorate the animal with ribbons in colors associated with the specific spirit.
The animal is then returned home or to its flock. It is now never ridden, worked or eaten, but is instead treated exceptionally well (or at least left alone to enjoy life) as a gesture of sacrificial devotion.
This treatment may be extended over the creature's entire natural life or for a specified period of time, although this must be stipulated from the first initiation of the ritual.
