The Lincoln longwool sheep is one of the most important breeds ever seen in our green and pleasant land. For centuries the wool from the sheep was exported to the continent by the ton. In addition the older sheep were walked to London to provide mutton, lanolin for soap and tallow for candles.
The Lincoln is also well known for it's unique genetics, not only producing a spectacular lustre wool but also showing resistance to several foot-rot causing organisms.
Now this breed needs support. It's numbers have declined alarmingly in recent years and more people are needed to help this tremendous breed continue into the future.
They are a very calm breed, which can be easily handled.
