Can I upgrade my crossbred sheep to Wiltshire status?
Stud Wiltshire Horn sheep can only be derived from other Stud Wiltshires by an unbroken chain of pedigree, ownership, and registration. Commercial Wiltshires (that is, those lacking pedigree and an unbroken chain of registration) can never become Stud sheep. And no sheep having, at any time in the past, an ancestor from whatever breed who was not a Stud Wiltshire Horn sheep, can ever become a Stud Wiltshire Horn sheep. However there is a good market for 'commercial' Wiltshires and they are used in many farming systems. We do not support registration of annex or appendix flocks.
