Fleecewife the cameroon and the barbados black belly are both hair sheep hence the heightened pigmentation ( hair holds colour better than wool ) but they are as far as i'm aware not that closely related.

I am totally ignorant about sheep except I like the taste  ;) ;D  Does the different coat mean they can only be meat animals - or is there anything that can be made with the coat?
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age
