We mean that sheep have been around for a very long time. The Mesopotamia 11,000 BC origins of domesticated sheep give them the distinction of being the first domesticated animals. These sheep were called mouflon and didn’t have the woolly sheep that we now know.

They were then raised for their meat, dairy, and skin for parchment or vellum. The wool we think of as sheep today was not an important part of their usage until around 6000 BC in Iran.
