Exmoor MulesExmoor Mule with Lamb

The Exmoor Mule is derived from using a Blueface Leicester Ram on an Exmoor Horn ewe.  The resultant cross-bred ewe is considered by many as one of the finest mules available.   

The Exmoor Mule retains many of the qualities of the Exmoor Horn; it has a quiet temperament and is easy to contain and handle, whilst exhibiting the improved hybrid vigour performance of the cross-bred animal.  The lambs achieve good weight gains from grass and finish easily at around 18-22kg deadweight.

The influence of the Blueface Leicester produces a good sized, long animal of good conformation and excellent fat to weight ratio.
