    Cubalaya and kraienkoppe. What breed would you choose from these two, and why. Waiting anxiosly to hear what you have to say.

    Both Cubalayas and Kraienkoppes are rare, but Koppes are far rarer than Cubalayas. For that reason alone, I think they should be given more attention, but Cubalayas are also in need of preservation. Plus, it is much harder to find good Kraienkoppes here in America than it is to find good Cubalaya stock. The best Kraienkoppe stock is in the Netherlands and Germany.

    And what about your experiance with them as a breed? Like about character, habits.
