Cute Ouessant lamb born
15th April 2016
Aahhhh, a new tiny lamb has been born at Paradise Park in Hayle.
Director Nick Reynolds commented “We keep Ouessant Sheep in the Fun Farm here at Paradise Park. As one of the world’s smallest breeds, their lambs are very tiny and very cute. This little one should be starting to get out and about in the next few days so hopefully visitors will be able to catch a glimpse of our new arrival.”
The Ouessant (or Ushant) is a breed of domestic sheep from the island of Ouessant off the coast of Brittany, France. Also occasionally called the Breton Dwarf, it is one of the smallest breeds of sheep in the world. Rams are around 49 centimetres (19 in) tall at the shoulder, and the ewes about 45 centimetres (18 in).
