Registered Heritage Shropshire Sheep breeders
Below are Canadian Heritage Shropshire Breeders with Heritage Bloodlines who stock represents true, traditional breed character. Flocks consisting largely of modern and/or American-based pedigrees are not listed here. Some critics of today’s modern American Shropshires suspect that they have been crossbred with other breeds, and as such the resulting stock do not in any way resemble classic heritage Shropshires. The modern American Shropshire is not at-risk nor endangered.
** Rewarding news!—The Rare Breeds Survival Trust just announced that the Shropshire, Britain’s oldest pedigreed sheep, has been brought back from the brink of extinction in the United Kingdom, though it is still considered endangered in countries such as Canada. If Canadian breeders work towards conservation we can acheive the same status one day.
