An exciting new breed to the UK, we have a small flock of Dutch Spotted Sheep, registered with the DSSUK.
The Dutch Spotted Sheep originated from Holland where the breed can be traced back prior to WW1.
The purpose of the hardy breed was originally to graze the dykes in Holland and keep them clear of seedling trees which would easily block the dykes and canals.
There are flocks in Holland, Germany, France and Spain as well as the UK and the sheep thrive on any ground, requiring very little concentrate feed. They are an easy-lambing breed with young up and suckling quickly and produce a highly desirable lean meat. The sheep are easy to handle with an inquisitive nature.
