About Dorset Sheep
Dorset ewes are of medium size and are naturally prolific; skin
color is pink whilst the face, legs and ears are white. Rams show a bold
masculine appearance and also carry good fleshing throughout. The wool of both
the Horn and Poll is of the highest quality, not only is it fine and densely
grown but is particularly white which helps it find a ready market in times of
plenty. Average mature ewe weighs 85kg, rams 120kg.
