Corsican Sheep

About

Corsican Sheep are the result of initial crosses between the Mouflon Sheep with a wide range of other sheep including the Barbados Blackbelly.

Fun Facts
  • When mature, fight to determine dominance and hierarchy. Males very aggressive among one another. Rams butt heads vigorously.
  • Grazers. Eat quantities of grasses and forbs. Also take some leaves when they can reach them or when they find them on the ground.
  • Sun themselves on exposed slopes when cold and sunny, but not windy.
