About the Sheep: The Bluefaced Leicester or BFL is a distinctive sheep with a strong Roman nose and black skin under white fur, creating a “blue” hue to the face.
Used primarily for improving size, width, prolificacy and general conformation in Britain’s hill breeds, the BFL excels as a crossing sire to create ewe offspring with the ruggedness of their Highland dams and the better frame and lamb production of their sires. The BFL adds width, strength and finer wool in almost every cross with another breed.
