Welcome to Valais Blacknose of Lovers Lane. We are Fred and Cheryl Hayes, a couple filled with lots of passion and just enough crazy to begin this journey into the Valais Blacknose Sheep breed-up program. We've been married over 40 years. With our kids grown and a history of raising livestock we're excited to start this adventure. After researching the topic, we planned a trip to Scotland and attended the Valais Blacknose Sheep Show in Carlisle, England. There, we experienced first-hand why the Valais Blacknose Sheep are called "the world's cutest sheep"
