Can any one tell us what breed of sheep she might be? She is 5mth old and is about 23" tall and hasn't grown much since we got her. She appears healthy and happy.
This is the link to her picture

Don't know beans about sheep but really am beginning to wonder wutt tell you're runnin up there? Did you look at that thing in the background? I'd say it's a cross between a skunk, duck, cat and maybe the Lone Ranger! lol
Maybe it's asking alot but could you clue me in whilst i still got fingernails left? :)

Well my eyes aren't real good anymore but she does look kind of like a barbado. unlike what was metioned below our neighbor has several and they're all fairly tame. But the head does look more like a goat head rather than sheep to me, possible a cashmere which is also hair breed.

What Dennis failed to mention, this is the sheep that was losing her hair. Anyway while I was taking pictures of Peep today lo and behold if, while she was laying down, a chicken jumped on her back and proceeded to pick her hair out. I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see her. Peep, who is not the smartest of sheep, just laid there, so one mystery is solved regarding-How Peep lost her hair?

Little side story also while taking pictures, Peep proceeded to jump into the duck's swimming pool. I told you she isn't the brightest. I sure don't need TV with her and her buddy Samson's (our pygmy goat) antics. I could spend the whole day out by the barns just watching all of the critters.

I love the country and thank God every single night for letting us be here in Branch.

That is about as rare as an honest lawyer.

I'd bet on tha lawyer.
Now what She looks like is a rare type of Nubien Goat as got modified ears'n wooly littleth hare. Ya mite check with tha smithsonion folks as ta a reconstatooted iceage critter.
Beyond that, I do believe You just may have a "one of a kind" Species hitherto unknown.

Meanwhile, Ya got'er and I'd bet tha Farm You would'nt part with'er no way no how. But, I'd take a second look at that wool gather'n two legged varmint,Who knows what such devious quirks might lead to? Better check with Cowpoke Jose on that'n!!!

I don't know much about sheep but I think it may be what they call a Barbadoes Hair Sheep. They are strictly meat type sheep and shed their coat each year in early summer. Just a guess.

She does look a little like it but the fact that She is approachable would indicate otherwise.
We had Barbs and Muflons at one time. Had one Doe that actualy got so tame if I moved REALLLY slow I could touch Her head while She was eating. Beyond that a herd of just captured White tail deer would be docile by comparison!
