At Ruff Row Ranch we raise Polled Icelandic Sheep.
Polled Icelandic Sheep
Why icelandic sheep? Because I've always found them beautiful.
From the icelandic registry:
"The Icelandic sheep is one of the world's oldest and purest breeds of sheep. Throughout its 1100 years of history, the Icelandic breed has been truly triple-purpose, treasured for its meat, fiber and milk...The versatility of the wool, the ease of spinning and the wide variation of tones and colors are a true delight to handspinners, and put Icelandic wool into the exotic or premium category. It is also known as one of the best fleeces for felting, which is fast gaining popularity in the craft community."
Some of the breed characteristics of Icelandic sheep:
Excellent fertility, normally producing twins and often triplets;
Thrive on grass and hay alone and are fast growing;
