Mount  Tutu  Sheep

The unique Mount Tutu Sheep are a closed heritage flock that have been selectively bred over 30 years by breeding back from modern sheep to the ancient mountain sheep type.  The founding stock were hornless Romney/Perendale, with Mount Tutu Sheep being a distinct breed and bear no resemblance to the original.  Both rams and ewes of Mount Tutu Sheep have horns, are piebald, have unique panda eye facial markings, and as typical to feral breeds, are most suited to firm ground, as opposed to boggy.  The tails are undocked, and tend to be shorter than other breeds.

Below, an excerpt from Professor Christopher Wills highly aclaimed book, The Darwinian Tourist: Viewing the World Through Evolutionary Eyes, where he refers to "the spectacular Mount Tutu breed".
