two color phases of this color phase of the Corsican sheep. The most striking
of these two are the pure white ones. Picture an animal, snowy, bright
white of nearly 140-150 pounds standing out in the middle of a field of
contrasting greens and browns and you can see why this sheep is one of
the most sought after of the common exotics.
The other color phase is one that I call the "bald face". It is a sandy
brown over most of its body with a white face much like a Hereford cow.
Both colors of this sheep have golden, honey colored horns that grow up,
back, down, forward and out. This hybrid originated in the state of Texas,
which is reflected in its name.
