Isle of Man 5-PENCE (KM61)

Manx Loaghtan

The Manx Loaghtan is a rare breed of sheep native to the Isle of Man. They have dark-brown wool and four horns, which is odd enough, but sometimes they can have six horns. They are prized both for their wool, and their meat. (And, one would think, for their crazy horns. Especially the ones with a 6-pack.)
