About Coburger Fuchsschaf SheepAbout Coburger Fuchsschaf Sheep



Coburger Fuchsschaf are a breed of landrace sheep that werernalmost extinct.

In the 19th century Coburger Fuchsschaf populated thernEuropean hilly ranges abundantly. These red fox-colored sheep could be foundrnunder names that indicated their color or living area, such as Golden Fox,rnEisfelder Fox Sheep, Eifeler Sheep, Ardenais Solognotes, or Rousse Tetes. Inrnthe beginning of the 20th century, 60% of the sheep in the German Coburg arearnwere Coburger Fuchsschaf with the red fox-colored heads, but by World War IIrnthey were nearly extinct.

rnrnIt took Otto Stritzel, a breeder and weaver from Bavaria tornpublicize the favorable characteristics of the Fuchsschaf, which laid thernfoundation for its continued existence. The Coburger Fuchsschaf is frugal,rnhardy, and prolific. Longevity and non-fussiness of food make it a perfectrnchoice for keeping on rough hilly ranges. It is possible to breed them threerntimes in two years. The specialty of the Coburger Fuchsschaf is its long wool.rnLambs are born with a dark red-brown fleece that lightens at age 6-12 months
