    Some of these are kind of untrue. Angora wool comes from a goat, and I have seen some naturally FATASS goats. But I guess genes don’t lie. And I did not know about the upper lip thing, that might help. (S…sssome day?)

      wool is typically from sheep and that from goats is called mohair.

    This article says sheep are entirely domesticated. What about the Bighorn Sheep and the Dall Sheep. I don’t think those are domesticated and all, or maybe they aren’t sheep or perhaps the article is mistaken.

    Wild Dall Sheep are sheep for sure and undomestictaed.
    Interestingly the photo provided at the beginning of this article, presumably to picture goats (since the tails that are standing up are said to be indicative of a goat in this write up) was actually taken from the Wikipedia page for Dall Sheep showing two lambs.

    Somalian sheep do not make wool. They have hair, like goats.

    No one routes for the evil villan who’s run off with the hero’s beau, same applies to a site that’s been stuck in Google’s naughty corner.

    Based on their experience, they could know how much is required before going into details.

    Hello, Big Horn Sheep are not domestic and run wild over large parts of western North America. Their population was almost wiped out by 1900 from over hunting and diseases from domestic sheep, but conservation efforts (in large part by The Boy Scouts of America), have brought back the Big Horned sheep. There also the wild Dall sheep, which ranges in vast parts of Western Canada and Alaska.

      There are many species of wild sheep and all domestic sheep are descended from them. The 2 wild sheep mentioned by other posters are North American natives, but there are many wild sheep native to Africa, Europe, India, Turkey etc. The Mouflon is a wild European sheep. Another thing, most wild sheep are hair sheep, shed annually and are not woolly. It took domestication and selective breeding to have woolly sheep. However, there exist many domestic breed of hair sheep that have gained in commercial popularity as they have superior leather and wool production has lost favor compared to meat production.

      If what you say is true, then there must be exceptions to your statement that “nothing is 100% true.” Therefore some things must be 100% true. In fact, all things are either true or they are not true.

    There are some things sheep should have never had to put up with. Abuse and Disease from the moral perversion (unreasonable even out at SEA) of bipedals are the UNforgivables for starters and then the experiments that led up to the creations of abomination are just a couple examples as to why there will be sheep on the right side of the throne and goats on the left side. Study up, there will be a test for classification of WHERE YOU WILL STAND in the great and terrible day (great for sheep and most horrid for goats). It all rests upon where you stand now. You must stand in the hope of the arrival of the Kingdom of the Good Shepard who never slacks in his duties. He cares for the ones who will follow Him. He is faithful to seek the lost and stolen most broken sheep (broken but REASONABLE) The Good Sheppard defends the undersheppard who defends the flock like the annointed King to be in Young David. That one is more than a mere man but is deserving to be called lord. And yet too many fall short behind seeking some $$self entitled$$ monetary reward. Sheep need protection NOT EXPLOITATION. Undershepards need to FEED THE FLOCK AND STOP FLEECING WITH UNCHECKED IMPUNITY. The undershepards must take heed to avoid allowing harm to come to their flock. When the Good Shepard returns, He will strip the greedy wolves of their fattened pelts and stolen vineyards with no apologies. And His sheep shall graze happily ever after. The End. Amen

    There are still wild sheep–the Big Horn Sheep of the Rocky Mountains, for instance.

    Nice article, but research have it that some specie of goat wool is what they have on their skin, likewise that of sheep where hair is present on some specie.
