Originally from the Isle of Ouessant, just off the coast of Brittany, these are the smallest breed of sheep in the world. They are extremely hardy and being a very old breed are relatively more resistant to disease than more modern breeds. They make excellent land managers and have a friendly, trusting disposition. They are easily trained and present few problems when being sheared or handled for foot trimming or injections. Their wool is very similar to Shetland and when spun can be knitted or crocheted into products ranging from hats and scarves to woolly, winter jumpers.
Our ewes are black and our ram, Rougerie, is caramel so his progeny all carry the caramel colour but are usually solid black. We offer ewe lambs, entire male lambs and wethers for sale in the early summer. All of our stock is registered with the Ouessant Sheep Society.
