The Drents Heath sheep is the oldest breed of sheep in Western Europe. Migrants brought the breed probably from France to the Netherlands, where as early as 4000 BC, in particular in Drenthe.
Characteristics of the Drents Heath sheep are a slender physique, a long woolly tail that beyond the heels can reach out, rigid and what sluike wool, dull hair on head and legs and a straight nose. There are all sorts of colours possible but coloured black and white animals are not recognised.
The race is divided into the old and the new type. The new type is created out of hybrids with the Schoonebeker Heath sheep and has, among other things, a krommere nose and smaller horns. Most contemporary Drenthe Heath sheep of the new type.
The Drents Heath sheep was mainly kept his manure was indispensable in the arable. The long wiry wool is moderate quality and if the animal meat producer is also not very convenient. With the invention of fertilizer were many herds superfluous. Today the Drents Heath sheep only kept for historical reasons and for the grazing of Moors and dunes to this.
The Drents Heath sheep is among other things to be found in the National Park Dwingelderveld with a sheepfold outside Ruinen and Dwingeloo.
