  • Interesting…The horns of a male Hawaiian sheep grow longer with age, growing away from the head in a spiral fashion.

Hawaiian sheep are known for their curved, spiraled horns.  As the name implies, the breed originated in Hawaii as a cross between mouflon and black-haired sheep.  Hawaiian sheep with spotted markings are sometimes referred to as Painted Desert Sheep.  The male is called a ram and the female is an ewe.  These sheep are good runners and climbers.  Hawaiian sheep grow to 100-150 pounds.  Their diet includes hay and grass.
