    You may want to consider American Blackbelly Sheep. I have carefully monitored and watched these AB's for nearly 1.5 years. They are more like a deer or antelope rather than a domesticated sheep. Strange thing about them, they do not like water. In fact, they will consistently jump over any type of water [i.e. small streams] or stay clear of it.

    Hope this helps!
