Flecked sceap are highly valued for their wool, which is not only naturally colored, but also can be used to enhance magical weaving. Tapestries woven with the wool of the flecked sceap will show moving scenes and creatures, and clothing is always soft against skin. Flecked sceap are herbivores and often used to graze down weeds so that other species can flourish, and they should be kept with their flock at all times to avoid loneliness.
This horned egg has wavy multicolored stripes.
Fluffy and brightly colored, flecked sceap hatchlings are a little skittish and shy, always alert to danger. They're wary of magi and other creatures, and prefer the company of their siblings, parents, and other members of their herd. However, a patient magi can befriend a flecked hatchling and be rewarded with an affectionate - if still somewhat flighty - companion. Sceap hatchlings grow quickly and most magi begin to shear the hatchlings when they reach a year old.
Adult flecked sceap are small but sturdy, with a pair of curled horns on the purple female and four horns - one pair curled, one pair straight - on the blue male. They're somewhat calmer as adults, but flecked sceap are still prone to flight when startled. Adults are sheared annually so that their wool can be used for weaving and for the sceap's comfort, but when unsheared, a flock is a beautiful sight in the night: the golden flecks in their wool gleam in the darkness.
