Dorper sheep originate from South Africa, where they were developed by the South African Department of Agriculture in the 1930s to create a sheep suited to arid conditions. They were created by crossing Dorset Horn and Persian Blackhead sheep. Dorper sheep grow quickly and naturally shed their fleece. Dorper sheep have a characteristic black head and drooping ears.
