Welcome to OuessantSheep.net
- The official website of the Ouessant Sheep Society of Great Britain. -

Please feel free to browse our site and learn a little more about Ouessant Sheep, the miniature sheep originally from the Ile de Ouessant in Brittany, France.

More about the breed.

The Society was formed by a group of like minded breeders and enthiusiasts in February 2005 and has since grown healthily in both numbers of registered sheep and also breeders and owners.

More about the Society.

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.

For more information on either the breed or the society, please dont hesitate to contact us at info@ouessantsheep.net
