Scottish Blackface Lamb Ram

Handcrafted Scottish Christmas Sheep by Colin's Creatures, Scottish Blackface Rams


One of my fondest travel memories was from my very first trip to Scotland, where I photographed Scottish Blackface rams for the first time. These friendly rams met me at the fence with the wind blowing through their wild long hair - quite a stunning image. They are endeared to my heart forever.

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

Size: 3" 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 (sometimes with white markings), and black legs. -- info via Wikipedia
