Sheep are woolly critters similar to a goat, but smaller than a cow. They are commonly found wandering in the pastoral areas of Elwynn Forest, Loch Modan, the Redridge Mountains, Hillsbrad Foothills and even a few in Alterac Mountains, Westfall, Gilneas and Howling Fjord. During the Second and Third Wars they were commonly seen in Lordaeron but most sheep in that area have apparently died. Not all sheep are what they seem.

Sheep are docile herbivores. Both black and white varieties exist, and they are prized for their wool. Some mages are infamous for polymorphing their opponents into sheep. Sheep flee rather than attack. Rumors of them exploding spontaneously are unsubstantiated.
