Sheep have many unusual breeds around the world. One unique breed has been named for a Biblical character who may have been one of the earliest selective breeders on record. The character is Jacob & the breed are Jacob Sheep.
|I'm usually spotted black & white but variety is nice!|
|This "Kid" Jacob sticks close by Mama! Notice the Kid's spots?|
|I don't have black & white wool but I'm still Valuable!|
|Ewe know I'm Ewer Ideal! Just look at me!|
The skin color of the Jacob Sheep corresponds to the wool color. A prime Jacob should look the part. It sports a "badger face", with a white blaze down the front of its face, but a black muzzle & cheeks. The nose, horns, & ears should also be black, along with the hooves, hocks, & knees. The legs should be primarily white!
|We have "Biblical" roots dating back to the "Book of Genesis."|
|Did Ewe know that I'm an "Ideal" kid? (even though I'm in the "Pen")|
|Ewe know God is Good when He gives Ewe a Profile like this!|
Sheep have many different breeds with just as many distinctive personalities. Even though there's such a variety of sheep, the Good Shepherd is able to celebrate & embrace their differences.
|Ewe know that I love Ewe for who Ewe are!|
Just as Jacob Sheep grow different varieties of wool , so God created each of us as " One-of-a-kind-designs". Celebrate that uniqueness as Ewe interact with those sheep He puts in Ewer path today.
