The Balwen Welsh Mountain Sheep originated from a small area of Wales, the Tywi Valley.
They are a small hardy breed that are easy to handle and their attractive markings often catch the eye of passers-by.
The Balwen is becoming popular among smallholders and farmers alike, mainly due to its attractive markings, hardiness, ease of care, and excellent meat.
The ewes make excellent mothers, having very few lambing problems and plenty of milk to feed the lambs.
The Balwen continues to be on the Rare Breeds Survival Trust's watch list.
