It is also known as MultiÂhorned sheep. It is believed to come from the Middle East. It is an old breed.Jacob's fourÂhorned sheep are perhaps the most easily identified sheep species in the exotic world. It's name is derived from the two sets of horns (or "4 horns") protruding from the sheep's noggin'. Some have only two horns or even 6, but 4 is most common in rams. Ewes will often have zero or 2 small, irregularÂshaped horns. Horn configurations can vary greatly. Horns in 2Âhorn, and the lower horns in 4Âhorns, usually grow in a classic curl. Upper horns usually grow upward, but may curl as well. The horns are black or black/white striped.A smaller sheep species, rams weigh from 120 to 180 lbs and ewes 100 to 120 lbs.
