No, but I think worth noting that a dog's owner is shot right in front of the dog and there's a scene showing how sad the dog was over his dead body. Dog was OK though and rescued.

Hm, I don't know... A woman gets away from her cruel man, whom she's travelling with, and he shows up later and takes her back against her will. He's been pursuing her, but I'm not sure how intensely.

A man controls, intimidates and threatens his wife, grabs her hard, kisses her hard against her will and at one point is about to rape her. He doesn't hit her.

Pedophilia is mentioned (a woman got married to a grown man at age nine, and they started having sex before she turned 10). Also, the main character has a mean and utterly uncaring father who treats him very badly. I don't think we see him physically abusing the son, or hear about it, but he says and does mean things, and there are no redeeming factors.

The sheep aren't really well taken care of but it's played light and comedic. One sheep in particular you can easily tell is CG.

A huge block of ice lands on a man, and the corner of the block fully squashes his head. We see it, but only briefly and not very close up.

Not that we know of for sure, I believe; there's just one cryptic sentence along the lines of "My papa has gone up on the hill to bury himself next to mama." The last we saw or heard of his parents, they were both alive. The parents are perhaps in their 60s or so and come across anything but loving and caring.

I didn't experience it that way. Maybe there's one when a snake-shaped doorhandle suddenly strikes (during a hallucination), although I saw it coming, as it was already moving a bit.

Yes, there is - remembered/hallucinated in the first moments of a drug trip during a pow-wow. First, we see the birth as if from the emerging baby's point of view - the birth canal, the light from the opening, the mother's knees and the doctor ready to receive the baby. Then we see the baby in the doctor's arms, wrapped in a blanket, a little goo on its face. The whole thing takes less than ten seconds.

A woman says "I'm half Jewish", and when the man she's talking to looks shocked, she says she's just kidding, and they both laugh; he's obviously deeply relieved. (Immediately after that, pretty much the same exchange takes place the other way around, this time about him being of Arabic descent. In fact this exchange is even more offensive than the first one.)

The word "bitch" is said, and there's a scene towards the end in which two main characters turn out to be majorly prejudiced against Jewish and Arabic people. There are also other racist and sexist statements and behaviour.

No. But I must mention that at the county fair there's a shooting gallery called "Runaway Slave", in which the targets are old-time racist caricatures of black people. During the end credits, the owner of the shooting gallery gets his comeuppance at the hands of a black man.

Nothing visually too explicit, except we see a bit of what we know to be semen on a woman's cheek. As for simple nudity, we see a man's bare behind clearly in one scene; other than that there's none. Oh, and then there's a close-up of a ram's penis, peeing. :D ... However, we HEAR sex going on more than once, loud and clear and explicit (moaning and dirty talk), and various sexual acts are mentioned/described many times throughout the movie. A case of bestiality is hinted at.

A head is rather graphically squashed (ice block scene), and we see two severed limbs (one is with the photographer at the county fair; the other I can't place). Other than that there's no gore, but there is a bit of blood here and there.
