Bundner Oberland (also known as
Bunder Oberlanderschaf, Grisons, or Graubunden) sheep are from Switzerland.
They are found in white, brown,
or silver-grey. Their head is slender and bare. Rams have substantial horns
while ewes have small horns or are polled (hornless). Both sexes display rather
primitive behavior. Multiple births are common. When mature, rams weigh on
average 72 kg (159 lb) and ewes 50 kg (110 lb). After reaching maturity, rams
grow to 72 cm (28 in) and ewes 68 cm (27 in) at the withers.
In 2007, there were less than
1,100 but their population is increasing and are used primarily for vegetation
