The Karakuls at HexenWald Ranch are bred for extra-large fat tails mainly from the Peter Neverov flock, with a bit of Anakus bloodline in the mix. Classic lines and classy-looking.

HexenWald shepherds are milking ewes to make high yielding cheeses from relatively small amounts of milk. The Karakul signature fat tail provides a particularly fatty milk. When used for cooking the fat adds juiciness and flavor to meat, adding mild flavor to other dishes.

Babette is FAMACHA Certified so the sheep are only wormed when they have a parasitic load, which decreases the opportunity for anthelmintic resistance.

Clean disease-free Karakuls, tested for all the major wasting diseases of sheep—OPP, CL, Johnnes. HexenWald Karakuls are scrapie codon tested for maintenance of an export certified flock.
