|Suffolks, originally from England, are the result of crossing Southdown rams onNorfolk Horned ewes. They became recognised as a breed in 1810. They made a perfect cross between these two breeds; getting their meatiness and quality of wool from the Southdown and the superb muscular body and hardiness from the Norfolk Horned. Since their arrival in North America the Suffolk has gone from strength to strength making them a very popular breed and instantly recognizable. The British Suffolk is different from their North American counterparts in so much as their legs are shorter and their overall appearance is stockier. Suffolk fleeces are considered medium wool type. They are docile and easy managed.
