TROPHY HAIR SHEEP OF AMERICA
Y.O. Ranch. Mountain Home, Texas, USA
Mrs. Myrtle Schreiner of the Y.O. ranch named these sheep in the 1960s, referring to the ranch’s Mouflon and Blackbelly crosses. The name “CORSICAN” takes precedence over any other later names such as Texas Blackbelly or American Blackbelly as it was named Corsican first, long before any registries. Corsicans comprise all sheep of Mouflon crosses. Some exhibit the black underpinnings of blackbelly influence, while others exhibit lighter underpinnings due to Mouflon influence, with all colors in between.
Corsicans may be any earth tone color from buff to fawn to mahogany, and may have either light or dark underpinnings. The term "yellow-belly" is incorrect when referring to sheep with light underpinnings due to Mouflon influence. A Mouflon saddle patch is allowed.
Sheep with white spots of any size cannot be registered.
