May the force be with these new additions at Heeley City Farm.
Two rare, white-faced woodland sheep have joined the farm’s flock of sheep.
They look like standard sheep you may see out in the fields – but staff reckon their impressive curly horns on the sides of their heads resemble Princess Leia’s hairstyle in Star Wars!
Animal worker Sarah Wild said: “Both the ewes are pregnant and we are due to hear the pitter patter of little hooves in March when they lamb.
“We’re expecting our white-faced woodland ram to arrive in March too.”
The white-faced woodlands are a very rare, local sheep breed.
They are listed on the Rare Breeds Survival Trust’s watch list.
The public can visit them seven days a week from 10am to 3pm during winter. Entry is free but donations towards the cost of feed are welcome.
