The Racka (pronounced /rɑːtskɑː/) or Hortobágy Racka Sheep (Ovis aries strepsiceros hungaricus) is a breed of sheep known for its unusual spiral-shaped horns. The Hungarian Racka sheep (Ovis aries strepsiceros hungaricus) – formerly Hortobágy racka sheep – is an old Hungarian sheep breed which, according to some historians, has been a companion of Hungarians since the conquest of the Carpathian basin in 896. Now the largest stocks are found in the Hortobágy steppes of Hungary.
