Painted Desert Sheep

Welcome to Dark Horse Ranch

We are a small, family owned and operated ranch, located in Lampasas County Texas. Our primary focus is the Painted Desert and Desert Dragon (multi-horned) varieties of hair sheep. While it was a combination of the striking coat patterns and impressive horns that first intrigued us, it was the functionality, versatility and ease of management that has made these animals a delight to keep and breed.

We have spent the last 6 years working to build our ideal foundation flock. We have assembled some of the best stock from the best bloodlines that we were able to find, within the state of Texas. Selectively breeding with such a small group is a lengthy process; we almost always have youngsters (and occasionally adults) available for sale. Since we are lambing year round, we encourage you to check our sales page often for new listings. If we don’t have what you’re looking for, please feel free to drop us a line; it may be that we do have something (not yet posted) or that we know of someone else who has exactly what you need.

Thanks for visiting!
