One of the most important parts of the economy of Wales is sheepfarming. It is estimated that there are more than 11 million sheepin Wales. Sheep farming accounts for about 20 percent of theagricultural industry of Wales.
Clothes, just like they do in England, USA, Australia and elsewhere. Ppeople in Wales are just ordinary people, they do not wander around wearing a so-called national costume (which was a Victorian tourist invention anyway).
Wales is connected to England by a number of mainland rail links and roads. Wales also has airports and it has ferry links with Ireland. The people of Wales use the same forms of transport as the rest of the population of the United Kingdom and indeed as the rest of the western world.

I'm not 100% but , just... from wales? it's a reeeeeeeeally old place , the welsh language was definetly around looong before the English language , and apparently its one of the eldest languages along with Gaelic... so i just presume that so were the welsh people.
The predominant nationality of people living in Wales is probably Welsh with English as the second commonest but many people from Ireland, Scotland and other countries now call Wales home.
It depends on who's going. They might be visiting because their ancestors grew up there or they're simply visiting a relative or just going on a holiday. But, and I mean this is a kind way seeing as I grew up and still live in Wales, it is raining a lot.
Sheep outnumber people in Uruguay with a 3:1 ratio. The ratio ofthe cattle to humans is almost quite the same at 3.7:1.
This generally means "Welsh-speaking Wales" -- a reference to those areas of the country where the Welsh language is commonly spoken, although sometimes people say "Welsh Wales" when they simply mean those parts of the country which look and feel "very Welsh". It's a translation of the Welsh phra…se Cymru Cymraeg . But note that Welsh has two words for "Welsh". Cymraeg means Welsh by language (Welsh-speaking, written in Welsh, etc.). Cymreig means Welsh by nature (Welsh-born or descended, made in Wales, etc.) Thus: -- llyfr Cymraeg : a Welsh book (i.e. a book in Welsh) -- caws Cymreig : Welsh cheese (because cheese cannot speak any language!)

it is said that there are 3 million people in New Zealand, and 60 million sheep. So the ratio there is 20/1. That is just for New Zealand. I dont think that there is that many in china, america, and australia. A2: . The sheep to person ratio in New Zealand has dropped to 8 sheep per person for 2…008 from a peak of 22 in some years between 1950 and 1990. This is due to many farmers changing to more lucrative production, with the exact change depending on the region. Some major changes have been to beef, wine grape growing and dairy. (MORE)
Because they want to live there, they have got a job there, they have relatives there or they have inherited a house there are probably all valid reason.
Different people probably have many different reason including, relocating because of a new job, becoming a residential student at a Welsh college or university, retirement, moving to live closer to relatives and simply wishing to live in Wales.

Wales is part of the United Kindom and it has the same forms of transport as the rest of the UK; trains, road transport, ferries, ships and even airplanes. The people of Wales use these forms of transport in exactly the same way as anyone else would.
There are no barriers to prevent people who live in Wales from accessing Myspace so I'm sure that plenty of people who do live in Wales do use it.
Different people no doubt have many different reasons for going to Wales including, holidays, days out, visiting historic or scenic places, visiting relatives, shopping, going to a beach, climbing, fishing, horse riding, mountain biking, motorcycling, driving, to work, to live there permanently and …many more. (MORE)
Wales has a lot of upland pasture (mountainside slopes which are low enough for good grass, but not suitable for arable farming). Such pasture is not suitable for Cattle (which prefer level fields) but makes excellent grazing for sheep. This is also the reason why Scotland and New Zealand are prim…e sheep areas. (MORE)
In livestock operations (including sheep), efficiency of converting feed into muscle mass is critical for success of the farm. The feed to gain ratio is a unitless number that expresses how well an animal converts feed into mass. For example. If an animal has an average daily gain of 500g and consum…es 600g of feed during this time, the feed to gain ratio (F:G) would be:. 600g/500g = 1.2. This can be interpreted as the sheep needing 1.2 lbs (or kg, etc) of feed in order to gain 1 lb (or kg, etc) of weight.. The lower the F:G ratio, the more efficient the pig (or animal) is at converting feed into mass. Typical F:G ratios for pigs range between 0.9 and 1.5, depending on life stage. A ratio above 1.5 typically indicates a poor producing pig.. Depending on the institution, a ratio of gain to feed may be more often utilized. This too expresses feed efficiency, but as an inverse of the previous ratio. So the same pig who has an average daily gain of 600g and consumes 500g during that time period would have a G:F of:. 500g/600g = 0.83. This is interpreted as the pig gaining 0.83 lb (or kg, etc) per 1 lb (or kg, etc).. When using G:F to express efficiency, a higher number is more desirable. (MORE)
Impossible one to answer! People lose their hair at varying rates in Wales as in any other nation, in addition to which there will be constant variations between those who move out of the country and those who move in to live there. It also depends upon how you classify 'bald'- just bald on top, or …COMPLETELY bald? I'm afraid statistics are'nt available on this one!! (MORE)
Most people speak English, around 21% speak Welsh which is a Celtic language but not Gaelic (which is spoken in Ireland and Scotland). There may be some Welsh who know Irish or Scottish Gaelic, however.

Yes there is more sheep in Whales than humans i don't know why but someone told me there was 40 sheep for each human. but i dot know i its true!
Some of the first merino to come into Australia from south Africa. They arrived with John Macarthur and Samuel Marsden in 1897. These were the first of a breed of Merino that was to become a uniquely Australian breed.
Probably since just after the end of the last ice age, around 10,000 BC. The first people in Wales were Capoids from Morocco, who went to Ireland from there in 9000 BC. They were hunter-gatherers, but also liked to look for gold. In addition, human ancestors like Homo Heidelbergensis lived in Wales …far earlier. They were the common ancestors of Neanderthal and Homo sapiens. (MORE)
In 2007, there were around 38.5 million sheep and just over 4.2 million people. Assuming these numbers have changed little since then (which by all indication they haven't) the ratio of sheep:humans in New Zealand is around 9.2:1 .
The majority of people who live in Wales live on, or near, the coast. The inland of the country is mountainous. Not to an uninhabitable level (people in the Alps and the Vosges live in far less hospitable environments), but the coastal area has all the best farmland, and nearly all the mineral weal…th too - so it has always made most sense in Wales to live near the sea. Until the eighteenth century it was also much easier to travel across the short seas that separate south Wales from Somerset, Devon and Cornwall; west Wales from Ireland; and north Wales from Merseyside - than along the badly-repaired and highwayman-infested overland roads. This is why in many ways south Wales has more in common culturally, politically, and socially with the English West Country; west Wales has more in common with Ireland; and north Wales has more in common with the Wirral and Liverpool than any have with other parts of Wales. Since the Industrial Revolution a considerable majority of the Welsh population has been concentrated in the south Wales litoral:- an area from about Newport to Llanelli along the South Wales coast. Centres of population sometimes also follow the major rivers that come out of this urban strip (particularly the Tawe and the Taff); but by the time one travels inland as far as (say) the Brecon Beacons (still only 50 km from the sea) major towns have become very sparse. There is a lesser, but still significant, urban strip along the shore of north Wales (Rhyl to Bangor); while the west coast has large open stretches, but a few significant towns (Aberystwyth, Cardigan, Fishguard). The Welsh poet Harri Webb wrote of the country having a Green Desert at its heart. That is about right. (MORE)

There is no single main occupation, but these days, most people in Wales work in retail, the service sector (i.e. banking, insurance, mains services, local Government etc.), agriculture, and manufacturing, especially in high-tech industries such as computer manufacture, specialist electronic compone…nts, aerospace and so on. There also remains some heavy industry in the South West, including a huge steelworks at Port Talbot in Galmorgan, opencast mining, and oil refineries in South Pembrokeshire. Tourism employs a minority of people, but it is not a central part of the Welsh economy. (MORE)

Shwd Mae boio. Ow's it going en? Right then, in Pembrokeshire the ratio of horses to female human beings is 10:1 you see. So when we calculate for the men, we need to do the cardboard equation relating to a Nissan Micra chwel. To do this now, we need to pop up to the valleys you see, up there is a… nice chap called Bryn Evans who can calculate the ratio of men to women in the count of Gloucestershire. Once we find out that we can then work out the ratio in Pembrokeshire by diving the number of women in Gloucestershire to the amount of horses in Pembrokeshire. Then we can see a lush ratio which looks rilly lovely. Mira will be so hapus. Diolch yn FAWR! Stay safe my Welsh sheep. (MORE)

Wales has a devolved Parliament called the Senedd, which has 60 members and is presided over by a First Minister. It holds elections every 5 years. The Senedd has complete autonomy over the areas of transport, housing, health, education, local Government, the environment and several other aspects of… Government. However, it's powers over energy policy are limited, and it has no power over policing, criminal justice, or taxation (although the latter is set to change soon, with these being devolved to the same level as they are in Scotland). A recent report called the Silk Commission has recommended that policing powers be devolved to Wales, which will in turn necessitate Wales having it's own justice system too. However, at present these are controlled by central Government in London. The political parties in Wales are Labour, the Conservatives, the Welsh Nationalist Party Plaid Cymru, the Liberal Democrats, and several independent political candidates. Wales is currently governed by a minority Labour government, which has to rely upon support from either Plaid Cymru or the Liberal Democrats to pass any legislation. UKIP, the United Kingdom Independence Party, has a tiny representation, but it's following within Welsh government is marginal because one of it's policies if elected to power in London would be to abolish the Welsh Parliament, which virtually no Welsh people want now. Wales has four members of the European Parliament- one Labour, one Plaid Cymru, one Conservative, and one UKIP, although the latter was elected as a 'protest vote' before most people understood what UKIP would do to Wales if elected to power in Westminster. He will probably lose his seat at the next European Elections. (MORE)

The Welsh name for Santa is 'Sion Gorn' ( pronounced 'Shwn Gorrn' with the 'r's rolled). This translates as 'John Horn', the horn referring to the shape of his hat. It may also originate from ancient Pagan rituals dating back to pre-Christian times, when Midwinter Celtic divinities sported animal ho…rns or antlers. The name may have been transferred to Santa over the Centuries. (MORE)
They are a Celtic race of the Brythonic lineage. The Celtic peoples are divided up into two racial sub-groups, the Brythonic and the Goidelic. The Goidelic groups in the British Isles are known as Gaelic, and include the Irish, Scots and Manx. The Brythonic group includes the Welsh and the Cornish,… as well as the Bretons in France. It is said that their languages are related, although this is only true up to an extent- Scots Gaelic is very different in practice from Irish Gaelic, and there is a considerable difference between Welsh and Cornish, with letters appearing in the Cornish alphabet that don't appear in the Welsh. Manx is now sadly a dead language, understood only by linguistic scholars, although some words remain in use. Some Manx words are, surprisingly, the same as Welsh, but are spelt phonetically- this is because Wales occupied the Isle of Mann for several Centuries in the first Millennium. The most common ground exists between Welsh and Breton. The Gaelic peoples have a tendency to look down upon the Brythonic Celts, believing themselves to be more pure-bred Celtic, although in fact the reverse is true- the Brythonic Celts are actually a much older race than the Gaels.

They are known as Welsh. A popular term that is used as a term ofabuse that is intended to deride the Welsh is to use the word asslang for being dishonest, deceitful and lying, but this is not infact the real generic origin of the word. The term 'to Welsh onsomeone' applied originally not as a sligh…t against the Welshpeople but referred to the surname of a dishonest racecoursebook-keeper called John Welsh, who was a notorious fraud andswindler. But nowadays few people know that, and it is usually usedas a racist term deliberately designed to insult the Welsh people. (MORE)
