shetland-sheepShetland is a Scottish breed of Northern European short-tailed sheep that are native to the Shetland Isles. Unlike their commercial counterparts, this breed is smaller with a slower growth rate. However, they have survived on poor diets in poor conditions for centuries and still maintain many of their primitive survival instincts. This, combined with their hardiness, adaptability, longevity and easy lambing, make them an easier breed to care for compared to other sheep breeds. The rams are horned while the ewes are polled. Today, Shetland sheep are raised for meat, wool and conservation grazing.

Shetland’s have a reputation for their very fine, soft wool that can be produced in over 30 different varieties of colors. The meat from a Shetland sheep is also considered to be of high quality, though it has limited commercial use.

We always strongly encourage you to thoroughly check out each animal breeder you are interested in purchasing from before you make your final decision. With over 25,000 different breeders listed on this website, it is impossible for us to be able to vouch for every one! And while we do our best to ensure only the top farmers are listed here, it's always best to double check yourself.
