Sheep in Binh Thuan

Binh Thuan might be the only place in Vietnam that raise the sheep. It is told that sheep brought by the French over a hundred years ago to this area. Since then, farmers have got used to this animal.

Due to climate condition, sheep here are raised mostly for meat. In the beginning it is for traditional meat of Champa people in the region. Now farmers can sell to other areas throughout the country.

Boys are hired to take care of sheep with a fee of about 100 bucks for one month. They can receive that amount at month-end, .... unless they loss one of the sheep.

After work, he plays with his sisters.
