Ouessant Sheep

These charming little sheep are claimed to be the smallest in the world. The horns of the rams are heavy, curl forward and terminate in sharp, outward turning tips. Ouessant ewes are polled.
The exceptionally small size of the Ouessant is attributed to the poor grazing on the island, which led to the selection of small sheep for breeding. The little Ouessant sheep carries a thick fleece of long wool with a dense undercoat.

DID YOU KNOW? Some people suggest that the Ouessant breed descended from a Viking breed carried onboard the ships and left behind on conquered lands.
