Bluefaced Leicester

These sheep should have a broad muzzle, good mouth and a tendency towards a roman nose, bright alert eyes and long erect ears. The colour of the head and skin should be dark blue showing through white hair; although a little brown is acceptable. There should be a good length of neck laid into broad shoulders with a good spring of rib and a long strong back with no weakness behind the shoulder. The hindquarters should be broad and deep, the legs well positioned and strong boned. It is important that the wool be tightly purled, fine and open clearly to the skin.

It is the Blufaced Leicester which is crossed with a Cheviot to create the much acclaimed, Scottish Mule. The Scottish Mule is renowned for surviving the Scottish climate, producing a fantastic fleece and good frame.

We have three characterful tup boys and numerous pedigree lambs.
