Over 300 sheep of varying breeds partake in the two-day Open Sheep Show at Topsfield Fair. The show takes place on the opening weekend of the Fair and includes Cotswolds, Dorset, Hampshires, Suffolks, Shropshires, and Southdowns, just to name a few participating breeds. The Open Classes feature Yearling Rams, Ewes, Lambs, and flocks. There is also a Youth Costume/ Lead Line class. It is such a treat to see the bright and clever costumes that the children have fashioned for their animals! And the Adult Costume/Lead Line class has even more creative combinations! The Youth and Adult Obstacle Courses present some interesting challenges, and what fun it is to cheer on your favorite entry.
Sheep are on display during the entire Fair. Plan to bring your camera and catch these friendly critters as they interact with families and friends.
