Interested in Ouessants?
If you are thinking of buying Ouessant sheep in the UK it is highly recommended you ensure the sheep are registered with the Society as you may be purchasing a cross-breed.
Ensure you get a valid registration certificate for each animal as any genuinely registered Ouessant will have one. Don't be fobbed off with excuses as there are a number of people selling sheep that they claim to be registered which are not
Also, you will need the certificate for the change of ownership form.

The Ouessant Sheep Society of Great Britain is affiliated with GEMO and the Dutch Ouessant Sheep Society.
