The Wiltshire Horn is unusual in that they’ve a natural ability to shed their winter fleece in the spring. This characteristic makes the breed very low on husbandry requirements. Not only do they not have to be manually sheared, they aren’t susceptible to fly strike like most other breeds. With the onset of man made fibres demand for wool as dropped dramatically, the cost of shearing a sheep is now more expensive than the value of the fleece
All these credentials give us a breed highly suited to modern commercial requirements. The breed is also well suited to smallholders and people new to keeping sheep.
