Scottish Blackface Ewe and Lamb Marked

Handmade Porcelain Sheep Figurines by Colin's Creatures, Scottish Blackface Ewe and Lamb Marked


When the ewes and rams are allowed to roam freely on common ground, the farmers put a splotch of paint somewhere on their back to identify the owner. These sheep have a blue spot on their rump, so they're Colin's, but I'll let you have them as long as they're going to a good home.

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

Size: 5" Tall approx.


Breed Description
The Scottish Blackface is the most common breed of domestic sheep in the United Kingdom. This tough and adaptable breed is often found in the more exposed locations, such as the Scottish Highlands or roaming on the moors of Dartmoor. It is also known as Blackfaced Highland, Kerry, Linton, Scottish Mountain, Scottish Highland, Scotch Blackface and Scotch Horn. Blackfaces are horned in both sexes, and as their name suggests, they usually have a black face (but sometimes with white markings), and black legs. This breed is primarily raised for meat. - info from wikipedia
