The Hungarian Racka was created by mixing some Carpathian breeds. This breed of sheep probably came to Hungary in the 9th century. For a long time it was the typical animal of the shepherds in the Hungarian lowlands.
The Wallachian Sheep is a protected breed, which only about 5% of the total sheep population in Hungary are.
The characteristic feature is the V-shaped, straight, corkscrew-shaped horn.
Rackas are extremely robust and undemanding. Their wool is of no importance but their meat is very nutritious.
