Jacob Sheep

Transcript of the Jacob Sheep Video



Jacob sheep used to be very rare, but thanks to the Rare Breeds Survival Trust and breeders, they are no longer rare!


Jacob sheep are good all round producers of meat and wool but do not make loads of either.

Superpower: Entertainment

These sheep are hilarious! Each of them has a unique personality and they love to explore and make friends with anyone, regardless of species!

Breed History

Jacob sheep originate in the Middle East and are thought to be one of the oldest sheep breeds in the world! The breed was brought to Britain in the 1750s and have been here ever since. Jacob sheep are famous for their amazing horns!

Our Purpose

This breed of sheep was developed for both meat and wool and to be very easy to look after. These days they are a favourite of small holders because of their amazing temperament and coat colour.
