At a Texas livestock show Tuesday, Mark Zuckerberg revealed his dream sheep.
A video from the Star-Telegram catches the Facebook CEO getting his goat geek on at the Fort Worth Stock Show. He asks about the breeds being exhibited, and then talks about his own menagerie:
“I think we have Nigerians, the small ones that just produce like a ton of milk? I’m trying to figure out how to import some Valais blacknose, they’re sheep from Switzerland. Those are definitely the cutest. But there’s all the import restrictions. I haven’t been able to figure that one out yet.”
Zuckerberg is right about the cute factor: The Valais blacknose — aka Walliser Schwarznasenschaf — looks like an adorable plushie (see video below).
The stock show visit was part of a whirlwind two days in the Dallas area. Zuckerberg, accompanied by Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price, was on his way to the evening’s rodeo. Earlier in the day, he testified in a lawsuit concerning the Oculus Rift and also visited a Facebook data center under construction in Fort Worth. Monday he helped plant a community garden in Dallas.
Zuckerberg has stated that his goal for 2017 is to finish visiting all 50 states. In 2011, his resolution was to eat only meat he had killed himself. Watch out, Valais blacknoses.
