Sheep of the day - the Jacob

Adam Henson shows us one of his Jacob sheep on his farm in the Cotswolds. The sizable Jacob is a multi-horned breed with sometimes as many as six horns. Their black and white fleece can be spun into an attractive natural coloured wool.

Dating back to biblical times, the Jacob is a handsome animal often kept on country estates and park land.
