The Clun Forest is a prolific, hardy and adaptable breed that was developed in the Clun valley of southwestern Shropshire and
the hill area along the Welsh border. The Clun has extraordinary mothering ability and vigorous lambs at birth. The breed is also
used in the UK for producing the Clun Mule, which is the crossbred offspring of a Bluefaced Leicester ram (tup) and a Clun Forest ewe.
The Clun is also an excellent forager and well suited for grass-based farming producing flavorful, lean lamb.
They are an alert and
responsive breed, the face is open and dark brown in color with the top of the head wool covered with ears not too long and carried
high. Its legs are fairly clean of wool, and they produce a white tight fleece, free from kemp and dark wool.
