That's a sheep shot

During the 1980s and '90s, it was all the rage for some Hong Kong celebrities and tai-tais to disappear from public view and re-emerge a few weeks later looking much younger.

And the key to this magical makeover? Sheep - or more precisely lambs residing in the Swiss Alps.

On the edge of a desert, an old market thrives and enchants

The road leading into Kashgar's livestock market is a veritable animal jam, a quagmire of unruly sheep, cows, horses and donkeys, all pulling in different directions.

Hard cheese

The Ardi Gasna (ardigasna.blogspot.com) blog isn't so much about eating food, rather it's about the making of it - sheep's-milk cheese, to be specific. Rebecca King, who started a sheep dairy farm in California, in the United States, writes about the business in all its (sometimes gory) glory, so don't expect posts about cute little lambs gambolling happily in green pastures.

Opposites can attract in the animal world too

The latest book from aspiring illustrator Shana Cheung Wan-shan tells the heartwarming story of an unusual friendship - between a sheep and a wolf.

Hong Kong plays an inflated and sheepish role for the Welsh in today's FA Cup final

Wales is a nation of the UK famed for its singing, rugby ... and sheep. Welsh folk have long tried to shrug off stereotypical associations with the woolly, four-legged ruminants that bleat 'baah' in unison, but we now learn that Hong Kong is playing a part in ramming home the jibes often thrown at the Welsh during sporting events between them and their old enemy - England.
