Shetland Sheep

Shetland Sheep  Shetland Sheep

 

The Shetland is a native of the Shetland Isles, located in the North Sea off the coast of Scotland. In this remote, rugged and harsh environment, the Shetland developed over a thousand years to become a hardy, self reliant breed. It is kept primarily for its fine, soft fleece which appears in a range of eleven natural colours.

Le Shetland est originaire des Îles du Shetland, localisée dans la Mer du Nord au large de la côte de l'Écosse. Dans cet environnement éloigné, rude et dur, le Shetland s'est développé, pendant plus de mille ans, pour devenir robuste et indépendant. Il est élevé principalement pour son excellente toison douce qui apparaît dans une gamme de onze couleurs naturelles.
