Our domestic sheep are descended from wild species from Asia and America.
The animals feel part of their flock, in which there is a strict hierarchy. The lead sheep is usually an older, female animal that everyone follows blindly.
Sheep are tirelessly on the move all day to find food. When dusk falls, they retreat to a sheltered place where they can ruminate and spend the night undisturbed.
