Border Leicester Sheep
The Border Leicester breed was
founded in 1767 in England. They are said to have
been introduced to the United States by George
Washington. The Border Leicester is regal and alert
with it's distinctive Roman nose and long ears. Both
ewes and rams are generally calm, easy to handle,
and a pleasure to work with. They are hardy and well
muscled. Ewes are good mothers and heavy milkers.
