About Navajo-Churro SheepAbout Navajo-Churro Sheep



Navajo-Churro sheep were the first domesticated sheep introduced into North America. Brought from Southern Spain in 1514, Churro sheep became the mainstay of Spanish ranches and villages along the Rio Grande.

Native Indians acquired flocks of Churro for food and clothing through raids and trading and eventually incorporated them into their lifestyle. After nearly becoming extinct through a government sheep improvement program in the mid-1900s, the breed is now recovering and becoming more popular, though still considered a rare breed.

Navajo-Churro sheep are a small breed, hardy, and disease resistant. Rams may carry four horns. The Churro fleece is long, fine, and coarse. It has two layers and is low in oil. Native Navajo tribes still use the Churro fleece to weave their famous rugs and blankets.
