"Jesus Christ DID NOT RANSOM EVERYBODY. He gave his life a ransom for many (Mark 10:45)... BUT HE LAIDE DOWN HIS LIFE FOR HIS SHEEP. They are scattered throughout the world in every tongue and tribe and people and nation." ~ John Piper
Sheep of Shetland Islands (Scotland) Although Shetlands are small and slow-growing compared to commercial breeds, they are hardy, thrifty, easy lambers, adaptable and long-lived. The breed has survived for centuries in difficult conditions and on a poor diet, so they thrive in better conditions. Shetlands retain many of their primitive survival instincts so they are easier to care for than many modern breeds.
