About Karayaka Sheep
There were around 1.7 million Karayaka sheep available in Turkey in the year of 1983. And that number was about 3.5 percent of the total sheep population there. But today, their total numbers has decreased to around 800,000, mainly due to occasions of crossbreeding. Their total numbers also decreased for the farmers, shifting to raising other more profitable sheep breeds.
Karayaka are small sheep. They are usually white with black eyes or black legs and head. Sometimes, black or brown animals are also seen.These animals are classified as a long-thin tailed breed. The rams usually have thick spiral horns, and the ewes are generally polled or hornless. The ewes on average stand around 24.1 inches at the withers, and the rams are larger than the ewes.
