|Showing Painted Desert Sheep
|Several United Horned Hair Sheep Association Members
have begun to show their Painted Desert Sheep. It is hard to
find shows that do accept them since they are a hair breed
instead of the typical wool breed that is normally seen at
sheep shows. Most shows are geared toward the 'wool'
breeds of sheep. Or geared more toward 4-H with a limit on
the age of the exhibitor. But the Open Shows are beginning
to pop up around the country allowing 'hair' breeds of sheep
to participate, and also allowing adults to be able to show
|Washington County Farmers & Merchants Fair
Open Sheep Show - Salem, Indiana
One day show open to all breeds of sheep and all ages of exhibitors. NEXT
SHOW JUNE 19TH, 2010. Sponsored by: Washington County Sheep
Association and Washington County Fair Board. Information contact:
|Contact us with more information on other Open shows
and we can post information here for others. Thanks,
|A few select shows are for the Hair Breeds Only, so the
'hair' breeds and 'wool' breeds do not have to compete
against each other. These are ideal shows to compete in
with the Painted Desert Sheep Breed. Check around your
area to see if there are shows that have classes, or are
willing to make classes for the Painted Desert Sheep.
Another option if you can not find local shows that allow the
Painted Desert Sheep contact the UHHSA - UNITED
HORNED HAIR SHEEP SOCIETY (click to email) to see if
they are aware of any shows in your area.
|We would love to see you at the Shows!
