Livestock / Animal Husbandry
Spanish term or phrase: moño
This comes from a brief description of sheep breeds, native to Portugal.

The complete sentence is:
"Cabeza adelgazada hacia el hocico, con moño en el frontal." and the breeds in question are Várzea and Monte.

I have come across "forelock" regarding horses but I do not know if this is correct for sheep.

Thanks in advance.
