Texas Open Class Livestock Shows

Jahonna Lena Looper

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 form here.

 

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/

In 1997, a Painted Desert registry was started, in Texas, in order to promote
recognition for the Painted Desert Sheep as being a unique sheep deserving of  more than it‘s humble origins.

Painted Desert sheep have been halter broke and exhibited and shown at live sheep shows with great success. They have held their own in the show ring, competing against other breeds and placing as top breeds in several open breeding shows!
