@catherinecarney The tail does not need to be docked on Katahdin hair sheep. The underside of the tail is smooth skin without hair. They have very short hair on tail, butt, and legs even when woolly for winter.One caveat with Katahdins (and most other breeds) is the need for tail docks. Not my favorite thing to do which is why I went with a short tailed breed, and if you do perform docks (and castration) fly strike could also be a major issue for much of the year so be prepared with fly spray as a preventative.
