Ravines don't naturally cut through sand, sandstone, or terracotta upon generation, but other cave types do.

      The bug

      In 14w20a, Mojang added caves naturally cutting through sandstone, sand, hardened clay and mycelium upon generation (see https://twitter.com/dinnerbone/status/466887474367954944).

      However, this new feature did not extend to the cave generation that spawn ravines, so you still get unnatural-looking formations where the ravine cuts into grass but not other blocks (see image attachment). This is why you never see surface ravines in desert, mushroom or mesa-type biomes.
