Black Hawaiian Sheep
By Steve Mahurin

The Black Hawaiian sheep is in actuality a Corsican sheep of another color. It is as with most Corsican types of sheep, a hybrid animal. This color variation originated in and is named for our 50th state of Hawaii.

This animal is coal black in color with some strains having a reddish outer layer of wool. They usually will have some white on its muzzle. In fact this is the only area that any color other than black is allowed on the Hawaiian.

Like the other species of sheep of this type the horns grow up, back, down, forward, up again and then tip out. The horns of the Hawaiian are also jet-black. Males can weigh up to 140-150 pounds while females will usually weigh about half that much.
