In the centuries of old, when many clothing articles were made of wool, sheep were largely valued for their thick coats. That has changed in modern times, for various reasons, and now sheep are often fatter and have less wool. These sheep, however, are apparently from a pure-bred strain of original wool-producing animals, that still value wool over meat. The name, if there is one, escapes me!
