I know nightshade is toxic but I can't remember the details. (And I have to run this am!) I'm pretty sure David C Hendersons, vet guide for sheep farmers, covers it pertty well even if its an English prespective. Some things get toxic or more toxic after a freeze though. You lost a lamb to a pepper plant? What kind? I had a break in to my yard this spring and they ate my green pepper plants with no problems. I'll look up what I can this evening if you can't get a better answer. I'll bet the Merk Manual could add something too.

Nightshade is Toxic to sheep, as are Potatoes and Tomatoes.
I would avoid letting your sheep eat these plants.

Have never heard of a sheep dying from eating a Bell Pepper plant? Could it be possible it at something else just before?

It's important to remember all things are toxic it just depends on the dose! Clovers are listed as "toxic" but only because they have a feasable doseage they can take in, typically clover is a pretty good hay even as a "pure" stand but sheep should not have free access to the feed and hay or grass pasture available too.

Those exhaustive toxic lists are next to useless,should have a rating as to how
toxic and some plants like the Yew is toxic at all times while Wild Cherry is only
toxic at very specific times etc.

Would you have any web references that we could link to Gary? A list is a start but a complete reference done out by hand is a monumental task. This list is copied as a sticky too so feel free to add constructive additions to it there. Thanks

After the night shade bushes freeze can goats and lambs eat them?
Yes, of course! Just like the first time.

What you didn't ask was - will the plants still kill them? And the answer is.... "Yes, of course! Just like the first time".

Honestly, they wouldn't get much from the leaves of a few chillies or tomatoes, and it doesn't take much to pull them and compost them. Why not spend the two minutes to pull the poisonous plants out?
