Red Texas Dall Sheep

About

Texas Dahl were originated as a result of cross breeding of corsican and mouflan sheep. Two white lambs found by Bob Snow on the Y.O. Ranch initiated the white corsican or “Texas dall” breeding line.

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.
