Up here in the Upper Hasental you can often see the native brown, or sometimes also the Werdenfelser mountain sheep, sheep in autumn before they come to the stable for the winter. Mountain sheep is originally a mixture of the stone sheep, the Zockelschaf and the Bergamasker sheep. This breed is medium sized, with a rams nose, broad, long drooping ears and a long woolen fleece in the C-D character. The Werdenfelser mountain sheep was originally a cross between the Steinschaf, the Zockelschaf and the Bergamasker sheep. The medium sized cloven-hoofed creature is characterized mainly by its long drooping ears. The meat of the lambs and young sheep is particularly popular.
