A long, healthy, and lustrous coat which falls in ringlets, ease of feeding, valuable meat supply, and quick maturation are this sheep's breed traits. Leicester (pronounced "lester") Longwools originated in Britain and were used as a pioneer breed. These Leicester Longwool sheep are much like the sheep George Washington raised at Mount Vernon. Each spring, visitors enjoy the joys of lambing season, gathering around pasture fences to see young Leicester Longwool lambs romp and rest. And our historic weavers enjoy their fleece, too!
