Awassi Fat Tail Sheep are highly adapted to arid climates of the Middle East. It is important to recognize that extreme summer heat will cause all sheep breeds to loose moisture through their skin. It is very important to realize that the natural feed sources are also drained of moisture and nutrients during the hot summer months. Be sure to allow ample shaded grazing areas and additional water to rehydrate your sheep during the heat of summer.
