While visiting our local Agricultural University a few weeks ago a friend captured some pics of what she describes as "Sheep with the head of a cow" She sent the pics to me and I have to agree they look weird, although maybe in other parts of the world they are known.

These sheep are about 3 foot tall, very muscly and look quite heavy. The uni is well known for its breeding programmes and edge of technology research.




Go on solve my curiosity....?

They look like Ryeland Sheep.



Developed in the Southern part of Herefordshire, these small, polled sheep are popular around the world. One of the oldest sheep breeds in the UK, history books suggest that monks from Herefordshire in the 12th century used to trade in Ryeland wool. Despite the impressive history, Ryeland remain in danger as a rare breed – although the breed does seem to be growing again. Wool is of the highest quality, as is Ryeland lamb, which can sell for a premium. Interestingly enough, this breed have previous in terms of grazing on rye land.

The left sheep is a male, that explain the bigger head: Look whats hanging between the rear legs to prove my theory.
Or is a typical example of a "sheeple".....

This is something that is just gettting big. In my area (northeast america) I seen sheep that had heads just like these ones. I go through the country side often and last week was the first time i have seen this.

I guess this science is getting popular.

they look like they could well be Beltex sheep to me.....




Beltex is a medium sized sheep, long in the body. It is wedge-shaped from a narrow shoulder to a distinctive large, double-muscled hindquarter. The head is generally white in colour but may have black, blue or brown shadings or patches. The fore face is short and thick. The fleece is tight, dense of medium staple length. Average male bodyweight 95kg.

Not the prettiest sheep in the world IMO

They remind me a little of our Dorper sheer. They naturally shed their wool so there is no need to shear them.

Handy if you only have a couple!
