Blacknose Sheep

These blacknose sheep are from the Valais region in Switzerland. They are a domestic type of sheep. It wasn’t until 1960 that they were recognized as unique, even though they have been around since the 15th century.

Blacknose sheep are bred both from their wool and their meat. However, they are also super friendly and love humans, which is why they would make such a fun pet to have around!

Take a look at these pictures from New Zealand. Then, I’m sure you’ll understand just why they were named the cutest sheep in the world!

Their Features

Their wool measures about 39 microns and a staple length of 100mm. They make 4 kilograms per head every year of wool! Due to the coarseness of their wool, it is mainly used for carpet or felt.

They would also make really good pets because they are so calm and friendly. Blacknose sheep are also very easy to tame and maintain. They would be a great addition to any home. Your children can learn how to raise them and take care of them due to their kind nature.

They are unique because they have black spots all over their bodies. They have black ears and faces along with knees, hocks, and feet. Because of all their black spots on their bodies, it makes them easy to spot and locate.

Aren’t these blacknose sheep just the cutest sheep you have ever seen? Don’t you want a blacknose sheep as your next new pet? I sure do!

Beautiful sheep ,, but how often do you do you have to shave um down?? & must it be done ? Thanks so much fur sharing.

They have to be sheared every spring, some sheep get sheared twice a year. You either have to learn to do it yourself, or hire a shearer who would charge and arm and two legs to come out shear one sheep.
