Strange-looking but cute — if you can even see their faces — the Valais Blacknose sheep is a type of mountain-breed sheep from the Valais region of Switzerland.

These fancy-looking lambs are called ‘luxury sheep’ for their magical faceless features, shaggy coats, and spiral horns.

Although they’re used for their wool and meat in Switzerland, the sheep are growing in demand in the UK as pets, with a value of up to £10,000 each for newborns.
