Now the time has come for goats to step aside because new sort of cutest barnyard animal takes the leading place. The new cutest animal is a breed of sheep. The name of the sort is Valais Blacknose Sheep.  It represents a coarse wooled breed of sheep that people are keeping for multi-purposes.

Two years later, in 2016, it was imported to the United States, and they continued. The transport was part of the upgrading program.
