KIND

 

“Kind” (sheep)

 

The Icelandic sheep  is a breed of domestic sheep. Descended from the same stock as the Norwegian Spelsau, brought to Iceland by the first settlers, Icelandic sheep have been bred for a thousand years in a very harsh environment. Consequently, they are quite efficient herbivores. The fleece of the Icelandic sheep is dual-coated and occurs in white and a variety of other colors, including a range of browns, grays, and blacks and some variations are seen which are not seen in other sheep.
