The Horns Have It at the Agricultural Show

The horns were my first focus of attention as I walked round our local agricultural show. There are any number of these shows during the Summer and ours comes at the end.

The weather was good enough (dry) and the sheep were panting away in their stalls as they waited to go on show and be judged. If the winning feature were horns, I’d give it to these two fine pairs below in black and white.I can’t name the varieties here but, not being a breeder or farmer, I was more interested in the how the aesthetic appeal of the animals than their heredity. I was with my daughter who is very much into fleeces for spinning and dyeing and knitting and weaving and my favourite in these terms was the one with a frilly fleece.
