Nice pics but really dont show any difference..because there isnt any but the lighter belly... Which is why I originally asked the question. If you look at the pic any of those rams could be in someones backyard herd LOL.. Actually I found out that mouflan, barbados and Corsican are all pretty much the same in looks with the exception of the corsican having a lighter belly. The corsican ram is actually a name that was given by a ranch way back in time... when they bred the mouflan with the barbados... Enter the Corsican Ram ... That is why the corsican and the barbados look so much alike LOL.. Here is from a bookBarbados sheep:domestic breed of polled,black-bellied sheep on island of Barbados,West Indies in the Caribbean.brought to us by the u s department agriculture in 1904 and crossed with horned to improve meat characteristics. never popular with commercial meat producers because carcass is small, but the large horns opened market with ranches. Corsican sheep: a registered trademark of the Y O ranch, Mountain home, Texas (also known as Corsican ram). color varieties called white Corsican(Texas Dall),black Corsican(black Hawaiian).all are names for a hybrid form developed at the Y O ranch by breeding European mouflon with domestic Barbados sheep. since then,sometimes hybridized with other domestic sheep.
