About Hebridean SheepAbout Hebridean Sheep



Hebridean Sheep are a small, hardy breed with fine bones and arntail reaching no lower than the hocks. Both sexes are horned, and about 10% ofrnanimals have four or more horns. Occasionally polled ewes are to be seen butrnthese are genetically four horned and usually produce horned lambs. The animalsrnare entirely black, though the fleece usually goes grey with age. Lambs mayrnhave a dark brown appearance because the tips of the fleece have been bleachedrnby the sun. The wool has a stiff, springy quality. It sheds water easily. Thernface and legs are free of wool. Ewes lamb very easily. The Hebridean is a veryrnactive and long-lived sheep, ewes often still lambing well at ten years orrnmore.
