Hello I've been on Instagram and I've found some interesting breeds of sheep that I'd like to know the name of. Before you ask these accounts seem to never mention the breed.

Here's the first one, it's Iranian in origin.

After doing a little bit of searching out of curiosity, the Iranian breed looks to be something called a Mehraben ? . There aren't many pictures that show the darker color with the white face. The Others from Asia could be one of many different varieties of Fat Rump or Fat-tailed sheep. I simply put in Central Asian breeds of sheep and several references came up.

The one with a bunch of rams is fat rump variety sheep, that's for sure.

...My inspiration for dieting. I don't want a rump like that. :hide

The sheep with the big rumps are called "Turki." http://www.sheep101.info/breedsT-V.html#Turki
The other with the black and white face is a "Balwen Welsh Mountain." http://www.sheep101.info/breedsA.html#Balwen
I put a few links in so you can read a bit about them.
Hope that answers your question!
Thank you for the references. In the 1st reference with the "turki" , there is also a bit about the Texas Dall sheep that we have. The picture of the rams looks exactly like some of ours.
