Orvelte Things to Do: 9 reviews and 10 photos
There's a sheep herd at Orvelte, that goes out during daytime in the neighbouring fields and at night returns to the pen. Unfortunately the pen was set on fire in 2008 by some vandals and must be rebuild.
The sheep are "Schoonebeeker heideschapen" (moor sheep from Schoonebeek). It decents from the German Bentheimer sheep. At present there are about 1300 animals of this breed.
