Originated over a thousand years ago, the Shetland breed is of Northern
European Short-Tail descent. Shetlands are a primitive breed noted for their
natural hardiness, lambing ease, longevity and ability to survive under harsh
conditions. They are one of the smallest breeds with naturally short tails.
Shetlands are primarily known for their production of colorful wool upon which
the Shetland woolen industry is based.
