Welcome to the Valais blacknose sheep society.

 

Weather you are a VBN owner or an admirer we all love theses sheep. Deemed 'The world's cutest sheep' the VBN sheep have taken  the UK by storm and to support this we have set up the society to protect the breed and  help breeders connect with others. 

The Valais Blacknose sheep 

 

These sheep and one of the most tame and docile you will have ever come across, they are also beautiful and have the cutest off spring. 

 

The Valais are a long wool sheep which need shearing twice a  year, they don't have as much lanolin in their fleeces as other breeds. The fleece although it looks curly and soft it is actually quite course and very good for felting. 

 

They are good meat animals with ewes weighing between 60-90 kg and Rams 90-180kgs. They are quite lean being mountain sheep. 

 

The VBN are often thought to be quite hardy, however traditionally in switzerland they would be inside for up to 7 months of year and are not used to much rain having come from one of the driest places in switzerland.
