Distinctively Marked Mountain Sheep
Why this breed
The Badger Face Sheep is among the oldest native breeds of Wales. It was originally named "Defaid Idloes" after St Idloes, who was sainted in the 7th century. It has enjoyed a renaissance since the mid 1970s when farmers in Mid Wales established a breed society. the Badger Face breed has two colours, Torddu and Torwen. Torddu means black belly and is mainly white with a black belly and eye stripes, and the Torwen, meaning white belly, shows the reverse colouring with smaller eye stripes. Their meat is known for its quality, succulence, fine texture and excellent flavour.
