Your area has alot of Soay sheep breeders. Soays are a "miniature" breed. They naturally shed off their wool, which is short and fine. They are extremely hardy, and also from Scottland, so well adapted to the wet climate. They are very primitive, and aren't easily tame, but mine know all about the grain bucket. The only down side I have found, is that they will find every single weak spot in a fence, and because they are so small can get thru.

Are you intersted in breeding sheep, or do you really just want lawnmowers? If you really just want lawnmowers, I would suggest getting wethers. They are tamer than both ewes and rams, especially since they don't have the hormone running through their bodies.

good luck!
