About Whiteface Dartmoor Sheep
Whiteface dartmoor Sheep have a white head and face, the
face of the ewe being free of wool, the ears are short and thick with
occasional black spots on them. They were always horned but this feature has
tended to disappear over the years, particularly amongst the ewes. The body is
deep, broad and of medium length. The wool is white, of good staple and with a
fairly strong crimp. Average mature ewe weighs 54kg, rams 74kg.
