Throughout the 1900s, there were a number of different breeds of sheep that were bred across the country that resulted in new hybrid breeds that all now fall under the category of Corsican sheep.
The Texas Dall was one of these breeds, and it represents a hybrid cross between Mouflon ewes and Rambouillet rams, as the United Horned Hair Sheep Association notes. They carry some of the same characteristics as other Corsican sheep, but they are also a unique breed with many traits that set it apart.
One of the most distinctive features of Texas Dall is that they are completely white with horns and hooves that are typically colorless as well. That alone makes Texas Dall look different from many of Corsican sheep hybrids like black Hawaiian, desert sand and painted desert. Their snow white appearance makes them easy to spot and also makes them one of the most beautiful Corsican sheep breeds.
Texas Dall rams also have horns that continue to grow throughout their lifetime and do not shed at all. The rams usually grow to be between 130 and 160 pounds, and they have meat that is edible, though the gamey taste means that many chefs will marinate and spice the meat extensively to create well-seasoned meals.
