Jacob sheep take their name from the Old Testament story of how Jacob became a selective breeder of pied sheep. Over the following thousands of years the descendants of Jacob's sheep travelled to Spain via the coast of North Africa. In the 17th & 18th Century, they were imported from Spain by the British landed gentry. The oldest known flock, imported in the 1750's, still graze at Charlecote Park in Warwickshire. The Jacob breed with its splendid horns and distinct spotted fleeces were ideal ornamental sheep to graze with deer in parklands surrounding castles and stately homes. By the end of the First World War many of these flocks had disappeared until in 1969 the Jacob Sheep Society was formed to preserve the breed.
