Baa Baa Black Sheep

Saturday, June 21st, 2008

I’ve heard rumours that the nursery ryhme Baa Baa Black Sheep has had it’s words changed in nursery and pre-schools, and the children sing Rainbow or Multi-coloured sheep instead of the words “Black Sheep”.

So in my quest, I have found a true Black Sheep. Click the photograph for more Black Sheep photographs. This sheep is the Hebridean.

Black Sheep
The Hebridean Sheep. The animals are entirely black, though the fleece usually goes grey with age. Lambs may have a dark brown appearance because the tips of the fleece have been bleached by the sun.

This is nothing to do with Black Sheep Ale which is also very good just up the road at Masham. Did you know there is also a breed of sheep called the Masham?
