Sought-after trophy

This breed is primarily cultivated for its wool. Rams have lengthy spiral horns that are frequently over one meter long (3 ft) making them a sought after trophy. This breed frequently seems slumped over and carries its head and tail down most of the time since they live in a highly difficult and mountainous environment. They are an energetic breed because of their small physique and long legs. The ears are slender, and the head and face are clear and small.

Origin

Arapawa Sheep are a type of feral sheep that are primarily found on Arapaoa Island in the Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand. Since their introduction in 1867, they have most likely lived alone on this island. Here at Kuranui we are blessed to have the opportunity to allow a specific number of this species to be hunted each season. Although there are numerous explanations for how the sheep got here, it is widely acknowledged that they are descended from Australian Merino strains. This breed is considered “rare” according to the New Zealand Rare Breeds Conservation Society. Making them a prime contestant for your pick of premium trophy.
