Zermatt. Blacknose sheep

In the barn, out at pasture or on his mobile phone: Paul Julen, the sheep breeder from Zermatt, is never far from his blackhose sheep, who are "very close" to his heart.The Upper Valais Blacknose Sheep farmer rarely leaves his barn below the Matterhorn in Zermatt before midnight during these weeks. Half of the animals have been back in the barn since October. His herds have spent six months during summer on Hohweng, Hohbalm and Stafelalp. Some find their way back from the pasture to the farm by themselves. "Blacknose Sheep have a memory for places and a sense of time far better than people."
