About Soay SheepAbout Soay Sheep



Soay sheep are regarded as the sole remaining representatives of the diminutive, ancient sheep that once roamed the British Isles prior to the arrival of the Norsemen and Romans.

Named after the Scottish island of Soay, these sheep were first brought to North America in 1974. They are characterized by their small stature and possess a fleece that ranges in color from light to dark brown, which they naturally shed during the summer months.
