Mirror Sheep, medium-sized and visually striking, are distinguished by their unique head design. Despite their predominantly white coat, they feature distinctive black markings around the eyes, on the ear points, and at the nostrils, giving them a striking appearance reminiscent of a mirrored pattern.
These sheep trace their lineage back to ancient Bundner sheep breeds such as the Prattigauer sheep, with potential influences from other local breeds like the silk sheep and the Luzeiner sheep. It's also believed that Austrian breeds like the Montafoner and eyeglass sheep may have played a role in shaping the characteristics of the Mirror Sheep.
This blend of ancestral influences has contributed to the distinct appearance and characteristics of the Mirror Sheep, making them a visually appealing and unique breed within the sheep farming community.
