About Manx Loaghtan SheepAbout Manx Loaghtan Sheep



Manx Loaghtan sheep are found on the Isle of Man off the coast of Great Britain. They are member of the Northern Short-tailed group, similar to the Hebridean, but slightly larger. Their wool is chocolate brown with paler tips. Manx Loaghtan sheep are descended from the primitive sheep once found throughout Scotland and the coastal islands of Britain.



Manx Loaghtan are horned with four horns being preferred. In England, the majority is two-horned. Individuals are also found with six horns. The horns are small on the ewes, but are larger and stronger on the males. They sometimes shed their natural colored wool in the spring. The meat is appreciated as a delicacy and are protected by EU law.
