We have had our pedigree Zwartbles flock since 2002. Our son was bought some black sheep for his christening in 1996 by a local farmer and since then we have always had an attachment to black sheep. We saw a lovely ram at a local sale a few years later and bought him to serve our Suffolk X ewes.
Zwartbles are a Dutch breed. They are tall and have plenty of milk to feed their lambs, which they are very protective over.
