Shetland Sheep are one of the smallest of the British sheep.
The ewes are usually hornless, and the rams have nicely-rounded horns, not too
heavy, nor too close together. Their head is well carried, their face is of
medium length with a straight nose and bright eyes, the back is straight and of
medium length. Shetland Sheep mainly have a white faced and are white woolled,
but there are small numbers of moorit sheep which produce varying shades of
wool. The average mature ewe weighs 35kg, rams 45kg.
