Ewes in the mountains, Turcana sheep
The Turcana breed is well adapted in the Carpathian Mountains, resistant and the only one suitable for extensive traditional breeding. For centuries in high Romanian mountains the rural economy has been based on Turcana sheep milk, fiber and meat. Presently, this particular Romanian breed is endangered. These look like Scottish Blackface sheep in so many ways.
