Genesis 31:10  (King James Version)
And it came to pass at the time that the cattle conceived, that I lifted up mine eyes, and saw in a dream, and, behold, the rams which leaped upon the cattle were ringstraked, speckled, and grisled.

a dream
24 ; 20:6 28:12 Numbers 12:6 ; Deuteronomy 13:1 ; 1 Kings 3:5

or, he-goats. ringstraked.

The original word, {beroodim,} from {barad,} "hail" means marked with white spots like hail; to which our word grisled, from the old french {gresle,} now {grele,} hail, perfectly agrees; hence {gresle,} spotted with white on a dark ground.
