Texas Dall, Black Hawaiian, Painted Desert, and Corsican Sheep

These 4 animals can be traced back to Corsica and Sardinia in the Mediterranean Sea. The original sheep, commonly called a Corsican, is mostly brown or a light tan with black accents on the belly and sometimes on the face, ears and tail. Mature rams peak out at 100 to 120lbs. All four categories have general sheep like horns with a full curl being the minimum size for a trophy. Trophy lengths are generally 28 to 32 inches with any sheep over 33 being a rare find. Texas Dalls are derived from the Corsican and because of selective breeding, started in Texas. They are 100% white. The Black Hawaiians have a similar story but it took place on the Hawaiian Islands. Painted Desert sheep look like a combination of Dalls, Corsicans, and or Hawaiians. They have a painted look with a combination of white, brown and black on one animal. All 4 of these sheep can be hunted any month of the year but their capes are best in summer (short hair), or between October and January (full coat). From February to May, the animals are often molting with undesirable hides for mounting.
