Pitt Island Wild Sheep, named Pihepe, originate from Saxony Merinos. They were sent to Pitt Island in the Chatham Islands off the East coast of New Zealand in 1841 by Baron von Alsdorf. In 1843, Frederick Hunt was the first person to farm them on Pitt Island.
Bohepe, a composite fine wooled sheep bred by AgResearch combined 9 different breeds of Wildsheep, East Friesians, Finnish Landrace, Wiltshires and Merinos to create a short tailed, bare breech, easy care sheep.
