Their origins are not known but there are stories about them being direct descendants of the flock of sheep acquired by Jacob in the Bible (Genesis 30).
The Jacob is a small, multi-horned, piebald sheep that resembles a goat in its conformation. Mature rams weigh about 120 to 180 lbs, while ewes 80 to 120 lbs. The body frame is long, with a straight back and a rump that slopes toward the base of the tail.
Both sexes are always horned. They may have as few as two or as many as six. The average fiber diameter in their wool is about 32.7–27.9 microns. The fleece generally weighs 3 to 6 lbs and varies in crimp and fineness. Staple length is generally 3 to 5 inches.
They have a primitive body shape and provide a flavorful, lean carcass with little fat. They are marketed mainly for breeding stock.
