Goat or Sheep (Ram)

The lamb represents filial respect; it kneels respectfully when taking its mother’s milk. The goat is also called the hill-sheep and it is a very popular animal in China.

However, the sheep is not as common as the goat and it is not revered. The wool is used but the mutton is not a very popular meal.  

The Chinese sign-symbol of a sheep is like a conventional picture of a ram with horns, feet and tail. There is a great deal of similarity between the sheep and the goat. Both represent abundance carrying stalks of grain in their mouth presenting them to the people: “May famine and death never visit your markets.”

The domestic sheep is the broad-tailed species and is not so common as the goat. The wild sheep looks more like a ram or a deer than a sheep.
