About Boreray SheepAbout Boreray Sheep



Boreray sheep originated on the island of Boreray in the StrnKilda archipelago off the west coast of Scotland. And the breed was named fromrnthis island. It is also known by some other names such as Hebridean Blackfacernand Boreray Blackface sheep.

rnrnThey were developed during the late 19th century fromrnScottish Blackface and a Hebridean type of Old Scottish Shortwool sheep. Theyrnhave been largely feral since 1930. rnrn 

rnrnTheir fleece is white to light tan, but occasionally darker.rnBoth sexes are horned. The ram's horns are large and spiraled. Adult ewes weighrnabout 28 kg (62 lbs) and stand 55 cm (22 inches) at the withers.rnrn
