Little known fact that many breeds of sheep naturally have tails (there are also quite the handful that have shorter, or rat tails). These tails are docked in most countries, making the sheep resemble how we are used to seeing them.
25% of sheep breeds however belong to a group called “Fat-Tailed Sheep”, and it is not customary to dock their tails. In fact, the tail fat is considered a food delicacy in some cultures.
This sheared fellow is of the long tailed variety - he lives in Saudi Arabia.
