Hungary

Racka sheep known for its unusual spiral-shaped horns. These unique appendages are unlike any other domestic sheep horns, and may grow up to 2 ft long. It was amazing to watch the shepherd and his dog round up the sheep in a tight circle in 3-4 minutes.

Originating in Hungary, the Racka has existed since at least the 1800, when the first registry was established. It is a hardy, multi-purpose breed used for milking, wool and meat. Both sexes have the unique spiral horns.
