There is more than one way to dress a sheep

Horse halters and accessories inside the Sunday Livestock Market in Kashgar
Scenes from Kashgar’s Sunday Livestock Market in China’s Xinjiang Province are more typical of neighboring Kyrgyzstan or Kazakhstan then of the Motherland itself.  How big your flock is, how well they cared for and their appearance is a reflection on the owner and his family.  A respectfully dressed sheep and a nice knife are a sign of wealth and taste here in Kashgar.
