Drysdale ram (1 o 2)

Drysdale ram

The Drysdale was bred from Romney sheep by selecting animals that grew coarse wool. Romneys’ dense, even wool cover creates a thatch, protecting the fleece from weather, dirt and vegetation, but the Drysdale’s fleece is rougher and more open. Drysdale rams have horns, while Romney rams have none.
