Faroe Island Ewes
Colin's Life Life Sheep Figurines,  Faroe Island Ewes


 

It is stunning to watch the long fur of the Faroes blow in the wind. These Faroe ewes have creamy wild long hair. I use mohair to replicate this remarkable fur.

All my creatures are handcrafted in my Asheville, NC studio using porcelain, castable stone and imported woven fur from Steiff-Schulte in Germany.

Breed Description
 
The Faroes is a breed of domestic sheep native to the Faroe Islands in Denmark. One of the Northern European short-tailed sheep, it is a small, very hardy breed. Faroes ewes weigh around 45 pounds (20 kg) at maturity, and rams are 45-90 pounds (20-40 kg). Rams are horned and ewes are usually polled, and the breed occurs naturally in many different colors. Faroes tend to have very little flocking instinct, and will range freely in small groups in pastureland. They are most closely related to the Old Norwegian and Icelandic breeds. --info via Wikipedia
