For more than 1000 years the Icelandic sheep has
been the unsung hero of the nation. Until around
1910 the sheep was the main milk producer.
Practically all clothing was made from wool, and
shoes of sheep leather. The meat was, and is, an
important source of nutrition. Even the innards,
bones, and horns were (and are) used, as well as
the pelt and leather. Even though white
dominates, there is a great diversity of
colours. There are sheep without horns and sheep
with four horns´ and leadersheep of outstanding
intelligence. As every tourist to Iceland
discovers, one meets small groups of sheep time
and again along the way. All sheep in Iceland
today are ultimately descendants of animals
which arrived with the first settlers in the 9th
and 10th centuries. This small book offers a
well-founded introduction to the specifics of
Icelandic sheep. A multitude of historic and
current photographs, maps, and diagrams make it
a treasure trove for fans of Iceland as well as
for sheep experts.
