Isle of Man: Manx Loaghtan Sheep

These are domestic animals, yet there are less then 1000 left in the world. This very rare breed of sheep developed in isolation on the Isle of Man from wild sheep and is now bread for meat which is considered delicacy and has been recognized as unique just like cognac or champagne (same standard of authenticity). They are very strange looking sheep with 4 or 6 long horns protruding from their face. They are only bred for meat and there are only two farms on the Isle of Man (there are some more in UK).
