In Zermatt there is the Shepherd’s Festival in Zen Stecken near the Furi cable car station (also near the Forest Fun Park). During the festival they select the most beautiful black-nose sheep of the year; a lot of fun, entertainment, and well groomed sheep. We were there several years ago. There are usually activities on Sat. and Sun. This year the festival is Sept. 8, 2019. On Sat. we watched sheep being washed and groomed. There is information on the Zermatt website, www.zermatt.ch. under events.
Also, the Julen family's black nose sheep may be in their fields near Furi depending on the time of year. I have only been there in Sept. The Julen family has more than 300 black nose sheep, the largest in the world. They are happy for you to visit the sheep in their barn. We have been able to see then when walking from Furi back to Zermatt .
