Herdwick Sheep


Other name(s):
 Lakeland Herdwick Sheep

Scientific name: Ovis aries

Country / Place of origin: United Kingdom

History: Herdwick Sheep are a hardy breed which are native to the Lake District in northwest England. Herdwicks are considered to be the hardiest of Britain’s breeds of hill sheep, and they are prized for their robust health, their ability to live solely on forage, and their tendency to be territorial and not stray. Herdwick Sheep were severely threatened by the 2001 outbreak of Foot-and-mouth disease in England and Wales, but have since rebounded in numbers due to concerted efforts to preserve this traditional Lakeland heritage breed.
