7 Sheep Colors

Most of the sheep we count in our dreams are either white or black but those are not the only colors that a sheep can be.

There are actually several colors that sheep can have depending on their breed and genetic history.

Here are the 7 Sheep Colors


Black sheep often have black bodies, faces, legs, and even a black tongue! They are considered a rare color and can even pop up in all white or other color herds

Black and White

Some sheep come in a combination of both black and white coloration. They can be spotted, piebald, or have both colors covering certain parts of their bodies.


Cream-colored sheep can be grouped in with white colored sheep, but their wool or hair is actually cream in color, not bright white like other sheep breeds.
