THE SAWIS SHEEP

The Sawis Sheep

Image description.

The Sawis is normally seen with a black or white head and the colour of the fleece ranges from a light grey to a natural white. Individuals can sometimes be seen with completely black fleece, but it is a rare sight indeed. Males wear horns, but they are nowhere near the fierce appearance of the Cuncu. The Sawis are easy to manage/breed, having very few health problems associated with many of the larger breeds. They have excellent feet, requiring little attention, and can get by with only the minimum of feeding at peak times of the year. Picture drawn by Bard Judith.
