Animal Report Small Final Show

  1. 1. By: Simone
  2. 2. Here is a list of what you call each age range in “sheep talk”:  Lambs-baby sheep, under one year of age  Sheep-adults, over one year of age  Ewes-mature female sheep  Rams-mature male sheep
  3. 3. Did you know both lambs and sheep have unique attributes? It’s true! Did you know mature female sheep are called ewes? Also, dogs are in the same family as sheep but were domesticated first?!? This next attribute is not only unique, it’s neat!!!!!! Some sheep have SPIRALING HORNS! Isn’t that neat?!? One more neat one! Sheep were domesticated…………………………7,000 years ago!!! Think how long ago dogs were domesticated(from now)!!!!!!!!! Oh, you know how I said mature female sheep are called ewes? Mature males have a name! They’re called rams. You definitely now know that sheep have unique attributes. Don’t you?!?
  4. 4. Isn’t it surprising that the wool is important?!? I never thought so myself- other than it’s important for wearing! I used to think there was no other reason sheep have wool! But there ARE other reasons. First off, the wool tells you the lamb, or sheep, breed. Speaking of breed, there are over two-hundred breeds of sheep! Isn’t that wild?!? Another fact about wool is that if you shear sheep only once a year it can become VERY dirty! Here’s another fact: Some sheep can be raised for the wool. A good reason is that sheep produce close to eight pounds-three point six kilograms-of wool each year! But still, some lambs are only raised for meat! The wool IS important isn’t it?!?
  5. 5. Do you know where lambs and sheep live? I do! Lambs and sheep have very many habitats. First off, most everyone knows sheep can live on farms. But when sheep (or lambs) do live on farms, they live in a particular area, a pasture. Not most people know that lambs (or sheep) can live in other habitats! They can live in any tropical climate, a ranch, any dry climate, high rainfall areas, private grazing lands, public grazing lands, or even grass lands! I bet you’ll agree with me that there are lots of habitats those fluffy, cute, white animals have!!!!!!!!!!!
  6. 6. You all know what sound sheep make. They go baaaa. Right? NO! Sheep make more sounds! Here is a list :  Lambs (normal)-Baaaaaaa!  Ewes (normal)-Bleeaat!  Ewes when frightened-Dogs bark!  Rams telling others to STAY AWAY!- sound of head butting against rocks!  Rams (normal)-Silent!
  7. 7. One of the stomach compartments I want to talk about is the rumen. This is the “Made For Cud-Chewing Food Storage Room.” Basically, the rumen holds food for Cud-Chewing. Rumination is for resting or for animals that have chosen not to eat. That’s all that the rumen is!
  8. 8. Did you know sheep have four stomachs? I did! That’s because sheep are in the ruminate classification of animals. There are hundreds of animals in this classification- one hundred fifty animals in this classification! These aren’t all of them-but at least it’s a lot of examples: cows, goats, deer, buffalo, bison, giraffe, moose, and elk. Normally, I call these animals (and the other millions!) “Cud-Chewers.” That means that the animal regurgitates, re-chews, and re-swallows their food. That is all I have to say the ruminate family is!
  9. 9. Do you know how sheep get food? I know! Sheep graze. Grazing is feeding or consuming food in a meadow or pasture. Sheep graze for about seven hours a day! When sheep are grazing, sheep eat LOTS of vegetation. Vegetation is basically any green thing on the ground. These are all vegetation examples: grass, clovers, weeds, and if you’ve been in a pasture-other pasture plants. Speaking of weeds, that’s their first and favorite choice to fill them up!
  10. 10. I’ve told you almost everything about sheep but a subtitle and paragraph are still missing: Growing up. The paragraph that goes with this sub title is now: Lambs grow up to be sheep as children grow up to be adults. Lambs become adults A LOT earlier though. Lambs grow as much as one and a half pounds throughout the days in Summer. By next Spring, the lambs are sheep (adults) already! “Thank you wherever you are out there Tonya and Dennis for letting me get inspiration and facts from your farm! I used two eggs already!” When I was at Tanya’s farm they had chickens and I gathered four eggs to take home. I used them on April eleventh for breakfast-that was not a day full of hours after I went to the farm! Thanks for reading-Simone Loysen :) :0 :)))
