The origin of the Icelandic leader sheep can be traced to a single ram from the hidden people
which got mixed with ordinary sheep in early times. It´s supernatural ability to pilot the sheep
flock through stormy weather, darkness, and snowy blizzard, to the safety of the home,
saved lives.
The leader sheep stock counts about 1400 sheep.
