Sheep Show

Mudchute’s Agricultural Show is proud to showcase some of the rarest and most ancient breeds of sheep in England. The Boreray, North Ronaldsay, Shetland and Soay will all be competing in the Primitive section of our Show. These small hardy sheep originate on the Scottish offshore islands from which they take their names and are amongst the smallest sheep breeds.

Much larger breeds such as the Oxford Down, Wiltshire horn, Dorset Horn and other historic British breeds such as the Portland (popularised in the reign of George III) will be represented. The Southdown will also be competing in the Downland/Closewool section. Galway and Black Wenleydales start the show in the Longwool classes. In the Hill and Heath classes, the very striking Jacob sheep (a black and white horned breed introduced to Britain from Middle East in the 1700's) will be found alongside the Lonk sheep of the Pennines and the Whitefaced Woodland from the same region.

The best sheep of each breed will go on to compete on Sunday in the Supreme Championship for the Best in Show title. Also on Sunday, a number of other classes for all breeds will be held, in addition to classes for City and Community Farm sheep only.
