Ovis aries

There are several species of Sheep and they can range in size. Most of them are white but you will also find those that have black or brown on them. Some Sheep have horns that tend to grown in spirals but many of them don’t. Some of them can grow to be about 350 pounds but most species are about 100 pounds.

They are often used for fleece. The Sheep fleece is believed to be the most common type of fiber used from animals. They are also raised to offer milk. Sheep tend to be grazers and they will consume grass, shrubs, and plants. The young are vulnerable from predators which is why those that have flocks often have Sheep dogs that stay with them around the clock.
