Artist's Description

Rare Breed Arapawa Sheep. This breed has been known on Arapawa Island, Marlborough Sounds for at least 150 years. A likely origin for the Arapawa sheep is that they are escapees of a flock of mainly Merino origin known to have been introduced in 1867, the original stock having undoubtedly come from Australia. But it is not impossible that they were introduced earlier by the whalers who were the first European occupants of the Island, or even by earlier visitors. (Rare Breeds Society)

This breed is now becoming a popular farmed breed for lifestyle block owners.
