We spotted these Katahdin sheep, an interesting looking breed that is usually raised for meat rather than wool, grazing on a pasture on Manor Road in Jamesport this week.
Named after Mount Katahdin, the highest peak in Maine, these adaptable and docile animals do not produce a fleece and thus don’t require shearing, according to Katahdin Hair Sheep International.
See more photos of these beautiful creatures below.
