Soay is a breed of sheep that was derived from a group of feral sheep on the small island of Soay in the St. Kilda Archipelago. While some Soay sheep were relocated to form exotic flocks, this breed has largely remained feral and helps Soay’s ecosystem with its excellent agility, allowing it to graze in areas domestic sheep cannot.
This breed is one of the Northern European short-tail breeds and produces extremely fine wool. Ewes can appear polled, scurred or horned while rams are either scurred or horned. Soay lambs are slower to maturity and produce smaller carcasses compared to commercial breeds. However, the meat is more gamey but lean and tender. Soay sheep are currently listed as “at risk” by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.
