About Skudde SheepAbout Skudde Sheep



Skudde are nordic, short-tailed heather sheep. They originallyrnwere from East Prussia and the Baltic States. However, today only a few smallrnherds can be found in these areas.

rnrnSkudde sheep have an imposing snail horn. The ewes arernhornless or carry horn stumps. In individual cases, it occurs that ewes carryrnchamois-like "hornlets." They are slender, rams weight between 35 and 50 kgrn(77-110 lbs), and ewes weigh from 25 to 40 kg (55-88 lbs).

rnrnTheir wool consists of fine wool fibers, dispersed withrnshort hairs and course cover hair. They are white, brown, black, or gray. WhiternSkuddes have small pigment spots on their head. Lambs have a rust-coloredrnmarking on the nape of their neck and on their legs. This coloring disappearsrnin adults.

rnrnThey are suited for pasturing more barren areas. The meat isrnheld to be a delicacy in circles of connoisseurs. Skuddes come into heatrnaseasonally. Lambs are born at any time of the year. As a rule three lambingsrnare possible in two years.
