A few select shows throughout the United States 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. We are needing local FFA, 4-H, Junior Livestock Organizations and County Fairs, in our
area, to offer shows that have classes, or are willing to make classes, for the Registered Painted Desert Sheep. This sheep
breed was originated in Texas, and unfortunately, only a few states in the Northern part
of the United States are currently showing
them. Texas should be the leader, since they originated
Please contact ALL your local shows and request that they offer an “Open” class
for the majestic animals! Also contact us if you know of any shows in Texas
that do have “Open” classes for these sheep so All of the local breeders can enter them!
Our ONLY options, in Texas, is the The
State Fair of Texas , who have offered an open class since 2007, the Houston Livestock Show or to join the Painted Desert Sheep Society and you can show your sheep ''On-line" by
submitting pictures to classes you would like to participate in. http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/CyberSheep/
