Scottish Blackface Family

Colin's Creatures Handmade Holiday Sheep, Scottish Black face Family


I have such fond memories of these sheep, as I spent my fiftith birthday roaming the fields of Connemara Co. Galway in Ireland and these ewes and lambs were everywhere.

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

Size: Approx 5 1/2" Tall


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
