Is this sheep right for you?

The basics:
The Harlequin Sheep is a new breed which was created by Kathleen Sterling at Black Sheep Farm in Berryville, Virginia USA. Harlequin Sheep were developed by linebreeding, crossbreeding and inbreeding breeds such as: Karakul, Tunis, Corriedale, Lincoln, Border Leicester, Romney, Montadale, Coopworth, Finn-Rambouillet, and Southdown rams. These breeds where used until 1998, when the flock was closed. Harlequin Sheep are now registered with the American Harlequin Sheep Registry (AMHSR).

Appearance / health:
The Harlequin Sheep is a medium sized, polled, pinto patterned sheep. They come in a variety of patterns and many shades of black, grey, brown, and white. Although Harlequin Sheep have very similar markings to Jacob Sheep, there is no Jacob blood in them. Harlequins resemble the Southdown Sheep in both conformation and size.
