Sheep Breeds: Older Breeds Or Hybridised Modern Breeds

There are many sheep breeds available and most of them are suitable for back garden farmers with their gentle nature and ease of care.

Sheep are very hardy and adaptable animals that can survive just about anywhere, they cause very few issues for new owners but there are some things to consider.

You can choose from an older breed that looks more traditional, a fancy-fleeced breed or a hybridised sheep that produces enough milk for a family.
