The Navajo-Churro sheep was developed in the U.S. by the Navajo Indians in
Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. Originating from the Spanish Churro, the first
type of domestic sheep in North America, the Navajo-Churro is know for its
adaptability and hardiness to harsh desert conditions. Some rams have four
fully developed horns and some ewes have small horns. The ewes cycle naturally
out of season, lamb easily, usually have multiple births and are protective
mothers. The Navajo-Churro has a long hair outer coat and a fine wool inner
fleece which may be white, black, gray or brown. Their wool is excellent for
use in hand-spinning, specialty garments and carpets.
