Red Sheep

Red Sheep are a naturally occurring hybrid from the Alborz Mountains in South Central Asia. They are a cross between an Armenian Mouflon and a Trans Caspian Urial. Rams have reddish orange bodies with white saddles over the hind ribs and flank. Mature rams weigh in around 90lbs. Horn shape is slightly variable with some offspring showing more of the Armenian mouflon characteristics, while some more closely resemble the urial. The typical horn configuration sweeps out and back, then turns inward towards the middle of the neck. Trophies are 27+ inches and are the most rare sheep on the ranch. Depending on animal movement, these animals are hunted either from box blind or spot and stalk. The months for harvest are October through February.
