Sheep or Goat?

I have to admit that I never thought it would be difficult to separate sheep from goats.  The only sheep I was exposed to before living in Cameroon are wooly, fluffy, white sheep.  The only goats I was exposed to before living in Cameroon are bristle type hair, horns and some have goat-tees.  Shortly after arriving here, on the CTC compound where the main offices are, there were animals grazing on the lawn.  I commented about the goats eating the lawn.  I was quickly corrected and told that the animals were sheep, not goats.  I was a bit confused because these animals don’t look like sheep.  While we were away to Banso area in Kumbo, we took pictures so you can comment bellow which pictures are a sheep or goat. I’ll post the answers in a few days.

“All the nations will be gathered in his presence, and he will separate them as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.”  Matthew 25:32

    I was wrong all the way around. Good thing I’m not a shepherd – and that there is a Good Shepherd watching out for me.
