Shetland

The Shetland's roots go back over a thousand years, probably to sheep brought to the Shetland Islands by viking settlers. The Shetland is the smallest of the British breeds and it retains many of the characteristics of wild sheep. Today they are considered a primitive or "unimproved" breed. Rams usually weigh 90 to 125 pounds and ewes about 75 to 100 pounds.

Hardy Shetlands are not fazed by harsh weather. These girls prefer to dig under the snow to get the dried grass over eating the hay in the barn!
