Scottish Blackface sheep

Ovis aries


The Blackface epitomises the mountain sheep. They have long coarse wool that shields them from moisture and biting winds. Blackfaces are horned in both sexes, and as their name suggests, they usually have a black face (but sometimes with white markings), and black legs. Wikipedia


The Scottish Blackface is the most common breed of domestic sheep in the United Kingdom. This tough and adaptable breed is often found in the more exposed locations, such as the Scottish Highlands or roaming on the moors of Dartmoor. Wikipedia
