What we do

The mission of the Shetland Sheep Society is to promote all aspects of the breed, to encourage the breeding, keeping and welfare of Shetland Sheep and to uphold the 1927 Breed Standard, within the UK.

We do this by exhibiting our sheep, their wool and craft products, at shows and events all over the UK.
