Hot Weather Sheep Sighting

I had limited up close access to sheep in Costa Rica. Only at a petting "zoo" located at INBIO Park in San Jose was I able to view this example of  a tropical breed, which I think is the Pelibuey, mentioned in an earlier post. I can't be sure but they look somewhat similar. As you can see, there was multi-species co-habitation going on here. I manged to sneak a sample of the fleece home with me, provided by the generous sheep "molting" in the photos. Considering the warm temps there, I don't think it is missed.
