The Whitefaced Woodland is a large and hardy breed of hill sheep in which both ewes and rams have horns.  They are good looking sheep which enhance any environment and adapt well to all conditions and systems of management

Ewes are large framed and extremely milky, with good mothering instincts, and produce strong, lively lambs.  Ewes put to a terminal sire produce outstanding lambs which finish quickly and cheaply, to a lean carcase.
