List of sheep breeds

Four breeds of sheep, in the illustrated encyclopedia Meyers Konversationslexikon

This is a list of domestic breeds of sheep. Domestic sheep (Ovis aries) are partially derived from mouflon (Ovis orientalis) stock, and have diverged sufficiently to be considered a different species.
