Jacob sheep are small, horned, black and white sheep which the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy has listed the North American population as a conservation priority. The breed produces a medium fleece which is sought after by hand spinners. Ziggy and her twin sister Rita were born in 2008 and are among a small herd of Jacobs that live at Green Chimneys. From gentle sheep, children learn valuable life lessons in kindness, patience, consistency and love.
