An 'upbred' is a sheep which has been bred in the past with a sheep which is not registered with the society but has since had further crossing back to Icelandic genetics. Only upbreds from those previously registered and over 99% may be currently registered in accordance with the constitution. Upbred sheep are marked by a '(U)' after their name.
