Sheep show, or sheep counting, is a traditional activity at pastoral areas in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, during which herdsmen showcase and count the number of their sheep. They will also pick out and eulogize their bellwethers in a symbolic gesture to pray for good growth of livestock in the next year. (Xinhua/Li Xin)
