Sheep can be very sweet and loving. But they also can be very stupid, they spook easily, and sometimes end up killing themselves. Goats are actually much smarter than a sheep.
98% of sheep have wool. All sheep have cloven toes, two ears, a nose, two eyes, a mouth, four stomachs, a tail, four legs, 14 ribs, and bad breath. They vary in size but stand with a 45 degree angle to their sholder, a generally straight back, and are bigger than goats. The major difference between Goats and Sheep is size and coat. All goats have coarse hair, short thick heads, are harder fleshing than sheep.
