No Problem!

I'll toss in an "E" - Exmoor Horn.

How about an "F"?

Llyn, i believe the Elliottdale is similar to the Romney with cleaner points and a carpet-wool fleece of 38=40 micron diameter, Rams may horned or polled but ewes are always polled. I haven't much info but bits and pieces. I also am so afraid of sheep (rams) with horns. I won't go near one. they wig me right out. its a horn thing. lol

Hi Rosie,

I've always seen horns as handy handles smile But then, I raise Jacobs for 15 years. Only got hurt once and that was when my hand let an ewe we were working get away from him. Ran right into my knee, she did and broke both of her upper horns off. Didn't do my knee much good either.

You're sure coming up with some interesting breeds.
Got any good "G" breeds?

Llyn

There is no such thing as too much fibre, just not enough storage space.

H= HU
Hu sheep were originated from Mongolian Sheep. As early as in the Song Dynasty(AD 420-479)

Never thought i would be so interested in sheep, there are so many beautiful breeds. Do they make good pets???

Sheep can make excellent pets, but you do have to remember that they are sheep. They're not going to be housebroken or use a littler box smile But bottle lambs in the house can be a blast as long as you keep them in pampers.

Glad to have you join us, Caroline. Rosie and I have been playing this game by ourselves so far. We're sure coming up with an interesting list of sheep breeds.

Here's an "I": Ile-de-France

Who's got a "J"?
