Horned Dorsets originated in England and Wales and have been an identifiable breed since the 16th century. Imported into Canada during the 19th century they were, for many years, one of the cornerstones of the sheep industry. The Canadian Horned Dorset type owes more to the older style British animal. It is a lower set animal and smaller than its American or Australian counterpart. After the introduction of the Polled Dorset in the 1950's, many breeders switched over and the Horned Dorset declined in numbers.

La Dorset con cuernos se originó en Inglaterra y Gales y ha sido una raza identificable desde el siglo XVI. Importada a Canadá durante el siglo XIX, fue durante muchos años, una de las piedras angulares de la industria ovina. La Dorset con cuernos Canadiense posee más del animal Británico tipo antiguo. Es un animal bajo y más pequeño que sus contrapartes Americanos o Australianos. Después de la introducción del Dorset acorne en la década de 1950, muchos criadores cambiaron y la Dorset con cuernos declinó en número.
