Asking a question for my sheep raising neighbor, He wants to know if the pit with built in pipe to allow to drive across but prevents cattle from crossing would work with sheep.

A couple orchards here use them to keep the sheep in and the deer out.
These are OLD apple trees so the people do not worry about the sheep stripping the bark, but the deer would be able to reach the lower branches where the sheep can not...

It should work with any cloven hooved animals except maybe goats, which will find a way around anything.

Then a goat can leap at an almost vertical wall of rock, hit it higher than a Texas Gate is across, then keep on climbing till he runs out of rock. Hard to stop that old billy.
