    A quick web search for What is a Suffolk turned up two different answers:
    A Suffolk sheep (a large meat breed of sheep), and  A Suffolk Punch (an English draught horse).

    The Suffolk is the smallest of the draft breeds, ranging from 15.2 to 16.2 hands in height and weighing from 1,600 to 1,800 pounds. It is always chestnut, sometimes with a cream-colored mane and tail. It is an extremely compact, clean-boned, smooth animal with great strength, willingness, and gentleness.

    The Suffolk originated in the county of Suffolk, England. It was developed entirely as a farm horse and not for use on city streets. Suffolks were first brought to the United States in the 1880's but only small numbers have been imported, and the breed has never become popular.
