Wensleydale are very large longwool sheep. They have a bold
and alert carriage which is accentuated by their broad, level backs on wide
quarters and strong thighs. They have a distinctive deep blue head and ears,
which should be clean except for a well-developed forelock of wool, usually
referred to as the 'topping'. Both genders are polled. Average mature ewe
weighs 113kg, rams 136kg.
