Subgroup: 
East African Fat-tailed
Special Characteristics: 
The breed is rather uniform in colour, mostly solid tan, with some animals being exceptionally creamy white, dark brown, black or spotted; the belly is usually lighter in colour than the rest of the body; the coat is short smooth hair; facial profile is straight but is somewhat convex in the rams; both sexes are hornless; the neck is relatively long, without a dewlap, but frequently with deposits of fat below the lower jaw and in the brisket; wattles are rare; the fat tail is triangular with a relatively narrow base and the pointed end, hanging downward or with a slight twist, reaching just below the hocks; often the rams have a mane between the head and the brisket and above the neck and shoulder (Galal, 1983).
Main Location: 
Widely distributed in the mid-altitude (1400–2000 m) areas of western Ethiopia, in western Shoa, Wellega, Kaffa and eastern Illubabor; the area has dependable rainfall of 1000 to 1400 mm; vegetation ranges from broad-leaf savannas to woodland and open wooded grassland to forest types; this habitat is adjacent to trypanosome infested areas (Galal, 1983).
