A ewe, or female sheep raised for its wool, meat, and milk and without the spiraling horns of a ram. Depicted in full profile on all fours facing left with a thick, white fleece and black, gray, or white skin.
Not to be confused with 🐏 Ram, though their applications may overlap.
Often considered (in lieu of 🐐 Goat) one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac.
Apple and Google’s designs previously depicted a ram. Samsung and Facebook’s designs previously featured only a ewe face.
📅 Ewe was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010
