Animals from the west (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ewes

Here is my best explanation:

'animals' is the definition.

The answer is an example.

'from the west' is the subsidiary indication.

'from' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue.

'ewes' is hidden within 'the west'.

(Other definitions for ewes that I've seen before include "She-sheep", "Females in the flock", "Sheep (females)", "Adult sheep" and "Female sheep".)
