Valais Blacknose Sheep

The Valais blacknose sheep, also called Walliser Schwarznasenschaf, originate from the Valais region of Switzerland. A dual-purpose breed of domesticated sheep, the valais blacknose have been used for wool & meat all the way back to the fifteenth century. 


They are a mountain breed known for their gentle, inquisitive, & personable character. We often call them pasture puppies because they are so sweet and love to follow people around. 


Both the rams & ewes have corkscrew-shaped horns but for those of you who dislike dealing with horns, we intend to have a polled line one day as well.  


They should have black faces and black ears with a white top patch on top of their head. They should have black knee patches and the ewes have a black horseshoe-shaped patch around their tail.
