Jacobs Ram

Ballinasloe, Co. Galway

The Jacob sheep is a breed of unimproved multihorned sheep, patterned with black and white spots.[1][2] Jacobs are grown for their wool, their meat, and their hides, and as pets and ornamental animals. As of 2009, Jacobs are listed as threatened by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, which means the breed has "fewer than 1,000 annual registrations in the US and estimated fewer than 5,000 global population." However, the Rare Breeds Survival Trust in the UK do not view it as being at risk as there are in excess of 3,000 registered breeding females.[3] Reference: Wikipedia
