The waist is 50-70 cm.
And average weight
- 30-35 kg for the female

- Sexual dimorphism is pronounced, rams being much more developed than sheep.
The body, head and legs of individuals in this breed are long. The thin-headed elliptical head is developed – a sign that the animal is part of a primitive breed.
Sheep do not have horns at all or show two semicircles with the tip facing up and down; In berberts, instead, the horns are strong, spiral-shaped, with a tip pointing outwards, with an average length of 80-90 cm, which serve them both in defense and attack.
Very rarely, four horns can be found, two of which are very strong, and the other two smaller and more fragile, semi-circular in the form of a top-down and front-to-back semicircle, surrounding the ear of the animal.
