Your sheep seem substantially larger than most breeds I have seen here. Working with a ram that size, I would have to hope he was friendly :ep If he was angry, I would not want to have to handle him :barnie The size of the tail and the facial structure are things completely new to me.

Yes, some rams are violent at times of mating and defending the herd and do not hear the one to enter and be difficult to deal with, and some of them are very satisfied at all times.
This tail shape is considered a store of fat (same camel).
Most often it will be very easy to deal with them ,But be careful about rams :)

How often do you clip their wool? Is the wool sold to make fiber? Does the tail get in the way of functions like kidding, mating, pooping?

Very curious and interesting! So in times of low food supply they can take some nutrition from the fat in their tail?
Possible but not for long times, because they can not bear and endure like camels:)

It has the ability to withstand the hot weather, the cold and the snow too.
( It has strong structures ) :thumbsup

We cut the sheep 's wool two or three times a year.
Currently wool is sold in very cheap amounts and some one throw it.

Tail things do not hinder her living things. At the time of male mating it has a special technique in lifting the tail through the head, the horns or the hand.
