History of Leicester Longwools

Leicester Longwools were originally bred by Robert Blakewell in the mid-1700s.  Mr. Blakewell was the pioneer of selective breeding and became famous for his techniques.  His intent was to select characteristics for a triple purpose breed (dairy, meat and wool).  The result was a strong-boned, barrel-shaped breed of sheep that were high-quality producers of all three.  Leicester Longwools are also very friendly and easy to manage making them suitable for shepherds with small children and other pets.
