Wiltshire Horn Sheep

Post by Shepherd » Tue Jan 02, 2018 5:49 am

The Wiltshire Horn is a very old British breed. Rams and ewes are horned.

It was hugely popular in the 17th century, but almost became extinct by the 20th century.

The breed is enjoying a resurgence for its shedding ability, hardiness and quality meat.

Distribution is worldwide.
