Text from the story:

There are many different kinds of sheep, but they are all plant-eating animals with hoofed feet. Plant eating animals are called "herbivores". Sheep eat grass, leaves, twigs, and young plants. Instead of eating three meals each day like you probably do, sheep graze. That means they eat a little all day long. Like cattle, sheep chew their food twice to digest it well. Animals that do this are call ruminants.

Adult female sheep are called ewes. Adult male sheep are called rams. Baby sheep are called lambs. Ewes can weigh between 100 and 220 pounds, and rams can weigh between 150 and 340 pounds! That means that sheep are about as heavy as or even heavier than most people!
