Flock of sheep

Just looking at sheep and was suprised to find that dreamstime refer to a lot of sheep has a herd. I always was told that a lot of sheep was a flock so if keywording is so important why call them a herd of sheep?

Wikipedia has sheep as being called a flock, a herd or a mob. Might want to use all 3 to account for regional differances.

Also keep in mind that often times people are not native english speaking and translations could occasionally translate to either herd or flock. Grammatically it is not correct...for stock...it could mean a sale or not.

As a 'not native english speaking' i would say: just use both. And don't forget about the UK and US English ...
