What breed could this sheep be?
« on: August 10, 2021, 04:48:37 am »
Hi all! Iíve had this whether sheep for probably 10 years, heís my pet. Iíve attached 2 pictures.  I like the look and the build of him but am not sure of what breed he is. I donít think he is purebred but more likely a mix of a few. Heís taller and heavier than all my other sheep. I know that his mother was pure black wool. If I had to guess Iíd think hampshire and maybe Suffolk. Anyone have any guesses or input? Tia

Don't wrestle with pigs, they will love it and you will just get all muddy.

Let go of who you are and become who you are meant to be.
