Royal White is a new breed of hair sheep privately funded
and developed by William Hoag, of Dorpcroix Sheep Farm in Hermeleigh, Texas.
They are a cross between Dorper and St. Croix sheep.
They are pure white. They grow a longer hair in the winter
that is shed off naturally in the spring. Ewes and rams are naturally hornless.
Texas Tech and Texas A & M University are currently doing research with the
breed with regards to meat production and scrapie resistance.
