Sheep are considered to be members of the family Bovidae, which includes mammals that have hollow horns and four stomachs (ruminants). Domestic sheep are all classified as Ovis aries, with many different breeds and varieties being recognized today. It is thought that sheep and goats were domesticated about 10,000 years ago and were raised for food and fiber.
