About St. Croix SheepAbout St. Croix Sheep



St. Croix is a hair sheep that originated in the Virgin Islands, where it is called the "Virgin Island White." They are believed to have descended from hair sheep of West Africa, but some think they are a cross of Wiltshire Horn and native Criollo sheep. Most St. Croix sheep are white with some solid tan, brown, black, or white with brown or black spots.

Both sexes are polled, and rams have a large throat ruff. Exceptional parasite resistance compared to British sheep breeds has been documented in studies at several universities. The St. Croix is classified as a "rare" breed by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.
