The Coburger Fuchsschaf is a medium-sized sheep. The head of the Coburger Fuchsschaf is hornless and has a typical shape for a land sheep. The head is brown coloured and unintentional up to behind the ears. The slightly hanging ears frame the sheep's head. A special feature of the Coburg chestnut sheep is the golden yellow to reddish brown colour, which is known as the "golden fleece". The lambs are born reddish brown and lighten with age. Males weigh around 85-105kg and females 60-85kg. Shearing of the sheep takes place twice a year.
