I’ve posted about leadersheep before and now I have heard from an Icelandic shepherd with more information. “Flannelberry” – who started a blog Flannelberry Farm (Small-scale farming, self sufficiency and all things considered…) – writes:
I am a shepherd with an Icelandic flock and came across your blog while googling “leadersheep”.
There are indeed leadersheep – a specific line within the more generic “Icelandic Sheep”. They’re lovely brilliant things, bred for brains rather than meat or fibre. They look a little different – narrower in most respects and more primitive somehow – but you would not want to have a flock without one.
More about them here –
