Feeling sheepish that you know little about the 'sheep' radical? That's about to change. Find out about characters with sheep on the left, on the right, and on top, and see what role sheep play in these kanji. Also learn to use (657: flock) when discussing flocks of sheep ... and sparrows and monkeys?!
