It is a breed characterized by big-size sheep, with the head without horns in both males and females and long, large, and hanging ears. The head and the end of the legs are black-spotted. The white fleece (sometimes spotted too) covers also the belly, the upper section of the legs, and, partially, the front of the head. The breed is characterized by longevity and proliferates thanks to the frequent twin births.
