Jacob Sheep

Jacob Sheep


Their true origins are not known; however documentation suggests these Spanish horned sheep were washed ashore from shipwrecks in the attempted invasion of England by the Spanish Armada. These sheep when crossed with the native flocks of Northern England and Scotland produced the breed we know today. Being a carrier of the polycerate gene they can produce 2, 4, 5 or 6 horns. The ewes are also horned. Handsome and hardy, the Jacob is ideal for the small flock owner.


Leur vraie origine est inconnue, cependant, la documentation suggère que ce mouton à corne espagnol se soit échoué lors du naufrage de bateaux pendant la tentative d'invasion de l'Angleterre par l'Armada espagnole. Ce mouton croisé avec les troupeaux natifs de l'Angleterre du Nord et de l'Écosse a produit la race que nous connaissons aujourd'hui. Étant un porteur du gène de cornes multiples, ils peuvent produire 2, 4, 5 ou 6 cornes. Les brebis sont aussi cornues. Beau et robuste, le Jacob est idéal pour le propriétaire de petit troupeau.
