Sheep are marvellous animals and have many benefits-they provide us with meat, milk, wool, hides, skins and also soap and candles can be made from their fat. They also control vegetation through their grazing and sculpture our landscapes. Seeing a field or mountain-side dotted with sheep is an uplifting sight. There are hundreds of different breeds around the world, some live in mountain forests, some live in deserts and some live on our lovely, lush green Cheshire pastures.
Sheep come in all different colours, shapes and sizes.
They should be celebrated! That is what we hope to do at the Poynton Show.
We will show you a variety of different breeds as well as a variety of their products and uses. The WI knitters will be demonstrating their talents with wool and there will be all sorts of other events and displays.
Please visit us and marvel with us the wonder of Sheep.
Do You Own Sheep and would like to show them at the Poynton Show?
We introduced something different last year-we want to have an exhibition
of sheep rather than a show where sheep are judged.
We have noticed that people want to know all about the sheep and the
different breeds and why some owners choose one breed rather than
another. They want to meet sheep and talk sheep!
We therefore would love you to attend this year and bring some sheep.
Your sheep can be any breed, any age, commercial, pedigree or pet. They
don’t have to be show-ready.
