This, I could not argue with. Maybe it would be useful to look at a picture of the animal one is attempting to make instead of guessing, but that's not what I did. For now, we will just be exercising our imagination. That's always good to do anyway.
I did end up searching Google images for "black sheep" and found a couple of strange looking sheep that bore a strong resemblance to our goat, pointed at the pictures and said, "Nope, it's a sheep. See."
"Oohhhhh", she said.
