I've had excellent sheep milk mozzarella. susan g is right in that you need to make sure they can tolerate lactose even in non-cow milk. Also, the skimmer the milk, the more lactose it contains compared to full fat milk.

Be sure that they will be able to tolerate non-cow's milks. If they can't it would be double disappointing. Can they use lactase enzyme tablets? When my kids were little we'd pass them around the table when we went out for pizza -- worked for us.

I love goat cheese mozzarella. Ricki Carrol is a wonderful cheese maker and has wonderful supplies and books. Here is a recipe she has for goat cheese mozzarella, along with a link to her web-site.
