Black Welsh Mountain Sheep


Black Welsh Mountain sheep  Black Welsh Mountain Ram

Black Welsh are small black sheep.  Rams of this breed are horned and posses a lovely black curling horn set. Ewes are naturally polled. These animals are small in size, are somewhat timid, but quickly adaptable to almost any situation or change in routine. There is no upper size limit, but the average height at the shoulder falls between 20 and 30 inches. Mature ewes weigh in at 100 lbs and mature rams weigh between 130 – 145 lbs. Their tails must remain undocked to be registered as purebreds stock. The tails are hairless on the underside and as such, theses sheep are naturally resistant to fly strike. This breed seems to be a little more level headed than some of the more commercial breeds and will not startle as easily. They produce a lovely black wool known as "cuchddu" due to the reddish colouring that can be present on the ends of the fiber. Average fleece weights range from 2.2 – 5.5 pounds
