Sheep are one of the oldest animals to be domesticated by humans. There are currently over 1 billion sheep in the world today, the young of which are called lambs. Sheep are used for many agricultural purposes, but one of the primary uses is for their wool, which is used to make fabric for clothing and more.
Lambs are young sheep. A sheep is considered a “lamb” if it is younger than one year old. Unlike humans who can take up to a year to start walking, lambs can stand about an hour after being born. Soon after, they begin to nurse from their mother, forming a strong bond.
