Arapawa Flock


These horned New Zealand sheep stand proudly and make an excellent addition to any flock. More positions for this breed will be coming soon. In the meantime, if you have something specific in mind just let me know!

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

Breed Description
The Arapawa Sheep is a breed of feral sheep found primarily on Arapawa Island in the Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand, where they have probably been isolated since they were introduced in 1867. Although there are many theories of how the sheep arrived, it is generally accepted that they are descendents of Merino strains from Australia. The New Zealand Rare Breeds Conservation Society classifies this breed as "rare". This breed is raised primarily for wool. --info via Wikipedia
