I went to Sennybridge Agricultural Show today, and among other things I saw something quite bizarre – sheep with their fleeces dyed yellow!
I did ask someone what is was about – he reckoned it was just cosmetic – to catch the judges eye.
I was wondering if anyone knows whether this is done regularly at shows now – its a while since I’ve been to an Agricultural Show – AND what dye is used, is it temporary or permanent?
Or maybe, just maybe, its an ingenious way to dye the wool BEFORE its shorn, and sell it as a pre-dyed fibre???
These are some undyed Suffolks for comparison.
I took loads of photos at the Show, and will be putting some more up soon!
