Are sheep casings Kosher?

There's been some discussion on the Outer Boroughs board about natural casing hot dogs. A hot dog expert said that he was told (and this is somewhat confirmed by my Google search) that sheep casings are not Kosher because they come from the back of the animal. Yet beef casings (derma/kiske) are as traditional as you can get. Can someone here shine a light on this issue?
