I bought Merry from the same farm as Wilma and Porridge. She was offered to me as she wasn’t able to be registered because her facial markings and fleece were not correct for the breed standard. Merry was very small and not in the best of health when she first came here but after treatment and a bit of extra food she blossomed and looks a very different sheep now. She was completely unhandled having spent her whole life out in the fields with her mum but with a little time she has become very friendly and cuddly. She is a very docile gentle character typical of her breed.
Breeding – Greyface Dartmoor
Colour genetics – Merry is white with a grey nose typical of the most Greyface Dartmoor sheep. This is the dominant ‘White’ pattern showing on most likely a black base.
