The Coburger Fuchsschaf
is one of the endangered animal breeds.
Even at the beginning of the twentieth century, the Coburger Fuchsschaf was widespread in individual local beats (for example, Coburger foxes, Oberpfälzer foxes, Westerwälder foxes, etc.). However, due to changed performance claims, it was almost extinct in the future, and only a few idealists succeeded in maintaining this breed and was recognized by the DLG as a breed "Coburger Fuchsschaf".
The beautiful and unique wool of the Coburger Fuchsschafes is a special recognition mark of this old Landschafrasse. The wool of the outgrown animals has a golden glow, which is also called the "golden fleece". The fleece of the newborn lambs, on the other hand, is reddish brown and only lightens with increasing age. The wool of Coburger Fuchsschaf is very good for knitting, dyeing and also good for felting.
