"Mary Had a Little Lamb"
An adult female sheep is called a ewe, an adult male sheep is called a ram, and a young sheep is called a lamb.
There are more than 1 billion sheep in the world, and China is the country with the most sheep in the world.
The fur or fleece on sheep can be sheared or shaven to make wool. Wool is a warm material used often in coats, sweaters and outerwear.
A person whose job is to take care of sheep is called a shepherd.
