This is a new one for me. Looked under this girls tail because she'd been a bit scoury. Well, things are very weird back there. She is one crazy mixed up kid.

She's a Damara sheep ... a ewe lamb ... well I thought.

Under her anus, she has an opening that she pees from, under that she has a rudimentary penis, under that she has a rudimentary vulva, and she also has two rudimentary testicles in their own separate scrotums.

Her belly is clean no sheath/pizzle.

You can kinda vaguely see two small testicles here

I intend to shave the area down once it stops raining, to get some clearer pictures

This discovery answers quite a few questions. She was a twin which the mum rejected, so she was bottle raised. Obviously mum knew there was something wrong with her. She's also got huge horns for a female of her age. She's a touch aggressive sometimes, and occasionally she acts like a male (courtship behaviour).
