Well modelled sheep 12 cm tall
I checked Coopercraft but their feet seem to be hollow.
I think it was bought in a gift shop later 20th C
I remember the seller gave the breed a name.

I don't know about the maker but the sheep looks like a Border Leicester!

Thank you Paveybe! In 2 clicks I got to Border Fine Arts Blue Faced Border Leicester. I think it’s a ram but I must check! I’m not a country boy as you can tell. Well done.

He's a she, Ben. Ewes have just two teats positioned between the back legs.
If it was supposed to be a ram the modeller missed a vital piece Big Laughter

Oh dear, sexing sheep is harder than identifying pottery! good thing you told me before putting it on eBay!
