Shetland (American Livestock Breeds Conservatory- Watch)
Shetlands are an amazing breed. They hail from the Shetland Islands north of Scotland. Shetlands are hardy, good mothers, easy lambers, with amazing wool and delicious meat. Shetlands are slow growing and small. Rams don’t grow larger than 125 pounds, ewes are usually under 90 pounds. Shetlands are a perfect first sheep. They are docile with friendly dispositions. Many Shetlands will wag their tails when petted.
