Today I got into a conversation about sheep vs goats, and how one tells the difference. There are so many pictures and videos labeled incorrectly it can get confusing. So I took it upon myself to do a bit of research and discovered that one person wrote an article long ago and people treat it as gospel, regurgitating that same false statements over and over. No one seems to have corrected it. Cut and paste cut and paste.
I posted a little test on Facebook to see if people knew the difference when looking. The results were interesting, and slightly predictable. My homesteaders were correct 100% of the time. My wonderful city dwelling friends were wrong 100% of the time. (I love you guys, but you need to spend more time in the country) Most people seems to believe that you don't shear goats, and you don't milk sheep. We need to change that.
But first, here is the test. I know, it's simple for some of you. But go ahead and try. Later I will tell you the answers and try to fix the sheep/goat misnomers.
Can you tell which is the goats and which the sheep?
