Bowmont sheep are also called the British Merino, they were bred from hardy Shetland sheep crossed with super fine wooled Merino sheep. We have one lone Bowmont ram called Rupert. Rupert came to us along with lovely Bo (a Poll Dorset cross) when their owner was rehoming her last few sheep due to a house move. Rupert is the most un-ram-like ram I have ever owned, very gentle and well behaved - which makes a nice change for a ram! Perhaps one day he shall pass on his gentle character and fine wool to some lambs.
