A staple of farms for centuries, sheep are domesticated for their meat, skin, fur and genetics. As herbivores and ruminents, sheep follow a feeding pattern of grazing and chewing cud.
With hundreds of species of sheep, these mammals are quite diverse in hair types and sizes. Ranging from 100 to 400 pounds, sheep generally grow to be as old as a decade or two.
With excellent senses of hearing and smell, sheep make up for their lack of depth perception. As a flock, sheep are easily swayed by food but also must abide by the pecking order. Perfect for imaginative fun, Schleich's standing lamb makes an ideal play time companion.
