 SHOWING IN FULL WOOL - Shearing time is here - do remember that this year there will be additional showing classes at The Royal Three Counties Show, and at our Society Summer Show, for Shearling Ewes in Full Wool - so you may want to leave a shearling ewe or two unshorn. When you fill in the Society Show entry form, please state whether a  shearling ewe will be shown 'clipped' or 'in full wool'.

 

Stone Head BiburyThe Cotswold sheep, often referred to as the 'Cotswold Lion' was introduced to the UK by the Romans. Their wool known as the 'Golden Fleece' was an important export. It not only played a major role in the development of many Cotswold towns and villages, but also in the finances of the nation. Sadly times have changed, and they are now classified as a rare breed.
