Why this breed

One of the oldest breeds of native sheep, the Dorset Down was developed in the early 1800s by crossing local, Wiltshire, Berkshire and Hampshire ewes with Southdown rams. The Dorset Down is a solid, thickset sheep able to cope with most conditions although not suited to the uplands. A stocky, powerfully built sheep similar in look to a Hampshire Down.
