Sheep are a type of woolly ruminant mammal belonging to the genus Ovis. They have long wool coats, short tails, and curved horns. They typically live in herds and are found in many parts of the world. Sheep are typically farmed for their wool and their meat.
Lambs are the young of the sheep species. They are born with short, soft fur and will eventually grow a long, thick coat. Lambs are typically born in the spring and are weaned when they are six to eight months old. Lambs are often kept for their wool and their meat, though they are also popular as pets.
