About the Breed

Modern Hebrides sheep have black, coarse wool that fades to brown in the sun, and often turns grey as they age.

Both rams and ewes typically have a single pair of horns, but individual sheep may have multiple pairs of horns, or none at all!

Hebrideans are hardy sheep that can thrive on rough grazing, and are often used as conservation grazing animals to help maintain natural grassland and heathland habitats.

In 1973 this breed was identified by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust as being in need of protection. However, since that time the breed has revived somewhat and is no longer considered rare. It is kept in many parts of the world beyond its native Hebrides.
