Simple: '/var/lib/sheepdog' is not a mount point.
Use a separate device for sheepdog (say /dev/sdb1).
Add an entry in fstab for that device
  /dev/sdb1  /mnt/sheepdata ext3 user_xattr 0 0

You may use /var/lib/sheepdog as mount point or whatever you like.

Note: if you use xfs, you don't need to pass 'user_xattr'.
