People have been talking about these cutest sheep in the world wherein they have become a worldwide sensation. These fluffy creatures are called the Valias Blacknose, a breed of domestic sheep originating in the mountains of the Valias Region of Switzerland.
They are bred and raised mostly for wool in New Zealand. However, the main reason they become popular on the internet is not that because of their wool. But of their cuddly and incredible black faces where people can’t decide if they’re cute or scary.
On first glance, they don’t even look real and many people have mistaken them for well-crafted projects because of the shaggy fleece that gives them the appearance of a cuddly stuffed animal.
They describe these sheep as “more like dogs than sheep” because they are gentle and curious with very little fear of humans, making them the perfect pet.
With their black faces, long spiral horns and fluffy fleece, it’s no wonder that this breed is said to be “taking the world by storm”. These sheep are going viral all over the internet and a lot of people wanted to import and breed them.
A purebred Valias Blacknose has dark patches on its face, ears, knees, and hocks. They have spiral horns and thick fluffy fleece, making them easily distinguishable from the other breeds of sheep and able to survive in extremely cold climates.
The Valais Blacknose are bred for their amazing wool which can produce about four kilos of wool a year. The first generation of this breed in the United States is being born this 2018 as a part of a successful launch of the “breed up program’.
Not only were these the cutest sheep in the world, but they are also the perfect pet for your family because of their docile and friendly behavior to humans.
