Photo: Suffolk Sheep Picture

Three Suffolk sheep in a lush green pasture in Nopera in Kenepuru Sound in Malborough on the South Island of New Zealand do not seem too concerned about having their picture taken.

Suffolk are an open faced breed of sheep that have black faces and legs and are often seen grazing in the fields in Nopera in the Kenepuru Sound on the South Island of New Zealand. Most sheep herders raise these sheep for their meat and will cross them with various other types of sheep to have some of the best meat production known.

The wool on the Suffolk is also very profitable for many of these sheep breeders. The ideal Suffolk sheep is very active and alert with a good stamina and balance for a long and active life. They should have black heads and long muzzles and eyes that appear very bright and full along with skin that is fine and soft.

Suffolk sheep were originally found in England but it was not long before they were found in many other places across the world. The English Suffolk Society was a very organized service and were very careful in the breeding of these sheep.

... sheep around the Malborough Sounds on the South Island of New Zealand is very common and not all people have them as a source of meat, but just to keep these cute animals around. When people take a picture of these little faces, they would have a hard time using them for meat, but most people do not raise sheep as a means of life.
