Vlaams Schaap are a rare multi-purpose sheep that originated
in Belgium during the late middle ages. They are sometimes confused with the
Belgium Milk Sheep.
After the Second World War all native milk sheep
were amalgamated to the Belgian milk sheep and the Flemish sheep almost
entirely disappeared. In the Netherlands, the Flemish sheep was used in the
development of the Swifter. They are a large breed, milky and fertile. They can
easily raise three lambs. Their white wool is long and curly at the ends.
