n. A breed of sheep with unusual spiral horns, originating in Hungary.


The Racka is a breed of sheep known for its unusual spiral-shaped horns. These unique appendages are unlike any other domestic sheep horns, and may grow up to long. The smallest standard length is for rams and for ewes.

Originating in Hungary, the Racka has existed since at least the 1800, when the first registry was established. It is a hardy, multi-purpose breed used for milking, wool and meat. Their wool is long and coarse, and appears in two general types: a cream wool with light brown faces and legs, and a black variation. Ewes weigh around , and rams .

The breed's unique appearance and quiet disposition would make it a desirable animal for hobby situations.
