Natural Choice

Like the Exmoor Pony, the Exmoor Horn helped to create and maintain the Exmoor landscape we all know and love.
The Exmoor Horn fits well into any setting where the conservation value of the land is a priority. They are ideal grazers of marginal and wildlife-rich grassland. As such they have an important role to play in a changing agricultural environment, which is now placing an increasing emphasis on conservation management of farmland.

Its ability to graze Exmoor is an important factor in maintaining the open moorland whilst maintaining indigenous heathers and this contribution the Exmoor Horn makes to maintaining the landscape is acknowledged by the National Parks.

They are indeed a “dual purpose” sheep, providing an effective management solution for conservation grassland, whilst at the same time delivering profitable returns from lamb.
