- 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.
