Atosa from Nayab, still in my collection but soon in a North American flock!
Is that a threat?! affraid affraid affraid affraid

you know what's really sad - i mean other than how beautiful this is - is that it looks like they were actually trying to do a specific breed, instead of the basis generic sheep. let us be silent as to what breed they were thinking of, as I fear if I say this looks like any known breed, that breed will Evil or Very Mad come after me.

Ken, such beautiful flock, thank you for sharing!
I love your Bullyland ewe and lamb. Their paint is wonderful. Please think of me if you ever decide to sell them! Very Happy
I love the Safari ram and ewe. It's so unusual for anyone to have done a "heads up" breed, that I adore these two. This board is inspiring me to try my hand at remaking a model, and I think I will start with this pair. All they need is to fix their ears and they'd be nice Kerry Hill Sheep, I think. Fix the ears and build up their noses and they could be Blueface or Border Leicesters. Actually, they could be worked into a lot of breeds.... study

you can still get it at tgftoys.com

Thanks everyone!

I apologise, my family have gone out to a theme park for the day and taken the camera !!!!
I guess most of my sheep can be seen under the brand topics. Mostly ELC Sheep.

Roger's sheep! With that mean expression and gunfighter's walk! We are afraid of it!!

Rio, your sheep look kind and friendly in comparison, they're a lovely herd!

OK, here are the first three pictures of our composition Sheep.

Tipple-Topple Sheep. A solid mountain-and-moorland breed.

Lineol's 1930's Sheep have a wonderful thick, carved fleece.

Lineol's 1940's to 1960 Sheep are smaller, and mostly painted in shades of dirty yellow-grey. (The one in the middle looks exhausted!)

I hope I did not force you, I was just joking Embarassed


Sue and Lesley, As always your figueres are gems beyond compare, - the little boy is precious also cheers

I think I can recognize the "Bah-ing" sheep, perhaps I have one, but in a miserable condition. But she is cute anyway, of course Laughing

Sorry, ladies! ...but when we collect a species we learn to love all, even the scary ones!
I think it could work as a Miniature cheviot sheep!
See here, well, if not you may keep it as Roger's sheep! :)

Fabulous collection Fernando! I like the look of the sheep in the second picture, on the right at the front - which brand is that?

Now that we have seen landrover's huge herd, we feel a lot better about swamping the forum with our Sheep! He has a lot more than we have!

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Hausser/Elastolin Sheep. Just generic sheep, with stupid expressions.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Hausser/Elastolin 1950's Sheep. These look like a definite breed. Two have red-rimmed eyes and an evil look ... vampire sheep?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
These are odd Sheep in different sorts of composition. Five of them have composition bodies and wooden legs.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Finally, our favourite Sheep, made by Safari. They looks as if they are dancing.

Also thanks for sharing your sheep with us! I love dancing figures! :)
I am also curious about Safari, my older figures are marked 1998! But surely the brand is older...

Susanne and Roger, the sheep are from the Safari Farm Series, which hit the UK in 1991. It was a high quality series with family groups of specific breeds. It included some beautiful Jersey cattle, but we bought the Blackface Sheep ...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
... and the Clydesadle Horse family. This is the mare and foal (recognise them, Rio?) .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The Clydesdale stallion ...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
... and his tag.

The mare is belly-dated 1990. The stallion and foal are 1991.

On its website, Safari says it started as an educational toy company in 1980. A different source says 1982.
