| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“They are accordingly found on the mountainour parts of Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cumberland, and Westmoreland; over the whole of the Lammermuir range, the upper part of Lanarkshire, and generally over the Highlands of Scotland. Both male and female of this breed have horns, which in the former are very large and spirally twisted. The face and legs are black or specked with black, with an occasional tendency to this color on the fleece; but there is nothing of the brown or russet color which distinguishes the down breeds.” — Encyclopedia Britanica, 1893
