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.
