The Lamb National is bringing racing sheep to Poynton Show!

Ewe wont bleat it!!!!

This event really is one for all the family as you watch the stars of track and field: hardy Herdwick sheep are insheep shape and are a breed known for their agility as they originate from the challenging terrain of the Lake District in Cumbria, UK and need to be able to jump to negotiate natural hazards.

In their individual colours, jumping over fences to complete the race. We provide an amusing commentary from the initial parade where we introduce the runners & riders with names such as 'Red Ram' and 'No Ewe Turns’ and throughout the race describing each sheep's attempt to bleatthe competition.
