sheep definition and meaning

What is a "sheep"?

Sheep are domesticated animals that are widely raised for their meat, milk, and wool. They are known for their fluffy coat of wool, which can come in various colors, and their docile nature. Sheep are herbivorous animals that graze on grass and other vegetation, and they have a unique digestive system that allows them to efficiently process plant material. They are social animals that often form tight-knit groups called flocks, and they are known for their strong flocking instincts. Sheep have been domesticated for thousands of years and are an important source of food, fiber, and other products for humans. They are also used in some cultures for religious or cultural purposes, and they are often depicted symbolically in various forms of art and literature.
