They're Castlemilk Moorits.

A primative breed with a reputation for hardiness, good feet, easy lambing, good wool and good meat. :D
Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.

Think you might have to change your username Kate ...

How do you fancy 'Kate and her Zoo'?  ;) ::) :D
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

If they are a primitive breed, how do they shear?

They have a rather short staple length so a little more challenging to shear (apparently, we get someone in). Catching them is the main problem!
