The Jacob sheep is a rare breed of small, piebald colored, polycerate (multi-horned) sheep. They have from two to six horns, though four is most common. An ‘heirloom’ breed, they have been documented in the English countryside since the mid 17th century, though their lineage appears to reach back much farther than that. Appearing in works of Eastern, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean art centuries earlier, the origin of the Jacob sheep may be traced back to the bible, (Genesis 30:31–43) where Jacob is described as selectively breeding sheep of certain type from his father’s flock.
