O=Orkney
Is found mainly on the islands of North Ronaldsay and Linga Holmoff the coast of Great Britain, One of its most notable characteristics is its ability to exist on a diet of seaweed for most of the year.
how interesting is that.

Hmmmm.....now I'm wondering if the Orkney and the North Ronaldsay are actually the same breed.

I'll toss in Ouissant for "O". Small French breed, probably the smallest of sheep breeds.

Got a "P"?

I thought I knew a lot of breeds but this little game keeps turning up sheep I've never heard of before smile

Here's a Q: Qinghai Black Tibetan. A carpet wool breed also used for meat production. They are polled and black in color. The breed is originally from Tibet.

And that brings us up to R.

Now talking about horns take the=
R= Racka which is a unique breed with both ewes and rams possessing long spiral shaped horns. The breed is of the Zackel type and originated in Hungary. Mature males may have horns as long as 2feet or more
The cork-screw horns protrude almost straight upward from the top of the head.

R is also for Romney, one of my favourites and getting more popular here in OZ, S could also be Southdown, which I have never seen out here, nor have I seen a Swaledale, or a Targhee.

T= Tsurcana ( a beautiful breed)
The Tsurcana may have descended from the wild Ovis Vigneiarkar since prehistoric time it has been domesticated in the Carpathians Mountains where it was established as a breed. It spread with movement of flocks through the Alpine grazing area, to all central European countries.
This breed has a harmonious body and is easily recognized by its coarse rough wool with length of 20-30cm

There is also, apparently, a Teeswater, which I would guess comes from the border area between England and Scotland. No prizes here, I looked it up as I was trying to find a U, unsuccessfully, unless its shorthand for Ewe, lol!

Wow! You guys really went to town with sheep breeds today smile

There is the Ushant, which is also called the Ouessant, but we did that one for o's.

So how about the The Ujumqin, a larger version of the Mongolian, which is found in Inner Mongolia, China. It has a fat tail and carpet grade wool.

Which brings us to "V". Anyone?
