Flocks of sheep

Moutons de race Thônes et Marthod.
Credit : PNV - DELORME Michaël

Description

In the summer you will be sure to come across the sheep grazing freely, sharing the pasture with the wild ungulates (chamois, ibex) often perched high up on the mountains. This is the local breed known as “Thônes et Martod” named after the village of origin. Rural and a good producer of milk and wool, this horned ewe is experiencing a renewed interest from local breeders. The recent return of the wolf to the French Alps has forced breeders to put in place means of protection which are not always adapted to these small flocks of Haute Maurienne.
