Good overviews of sheep and goat health and disease:

Lambing and Kidding:

NOTE: Although goats and sheep are both small ruminants, and they share similar physiologic characteristics, they have some different nutritional needs. These differences are especially important when it comes to trace minerals, such as copper. When you are buying feed, be sure to specify whether you are feeding goats or sheep.

Forage requirements are similar for goats and sheep, although sheep are predominantly grazers and goats are predominantly browsers. This makes sheep better lawn mowers and weed eaters than goats (in general).
