Our Shetlands

The small and very hardy Shetland is the ideal sheep for those thinking of having a smallholding. We have bred Shetlands for several years and in that time have hardly had any problems. They are able to cope with bad wintery weather and we only bring them inside and undercover for lambing. It is far better to keep the ewes inside until the lambs increase in size, otherwise buzzards and foxes tend to take the kitten sized lambs.
