Developed in the United States, California Red sheep are a dual-purposed, domestic breed known for being all red at birth, keeping their color in the face and limbs as they grow. Their wool is prized by hand spinners and weavers and their meat is tender with a delicate mutton flavor.
The breed is known to be calm and gentle showing resistance to heat, diseases and handling problems. They breed year round like the Barbados sheep. Rams have manes of red hair and beige colored wool with no hair on their legs and head. Both sexes have a bold expression with distinct muzzles. They have long pendulous ears and their body is medium-sized. Rams can weigh between 225-250 lbs and ewes between 130-150 lbs.
All individuals of the breed are polled. Ewes are known to be protective and defensive mothers but require no help breeding or lambing.
