  1. UM there are actual several breeds that carry the dominant black allele, Karakul, Black Welsh Mountain, Shetland, Icelandic, Jacob and some of the other middle eastern breeds all have the dominant black genes.

  2. I’m sorry for posting inaccurate information. Thank you for the correction. I know very little when it comes to color genetics and I rely on information I have read. Since posting this I have learned that Shetlands and Icelandics carry the dominant black allele and now Karakul as well. Someone said that they have discovered that the dominant black allele found in Black Welsh Mountain came from the Jacob sheep a very long time ago – do you know if this is correct?
