Somebody I can rely upon to know a lot about well, a lot really is Yamini. She is a great fount of knowledge and if she doesn't know, she is quick to find the answer elsewhere. So, it was no wonder that she gave me the breed of the sheep shown in Monday's post.
The Jacob breed
However, for once her answer was not right. Which wasn't her fault really as I had shown only the lambs of the breed and not the adults. And the adults that were in the photo were disguised by trees and grass and it was impossible to see them properly.
The Racka breed
At the top you can see the photo I posted on Monday. The second photo (from Wikipedia) is the breed she told me they were. However, in the third photo (mine) you can see the adults look quite different. For a start the wool is much longer in the Racka and where the Jacob have up to four horns that are ribbed and curved, the Racka have only two that are twisted and straight.
