A Wilder Shropshire

S hropshires are a very Likeable Sheep. So easy to fall in love with that face—that button nose—those cute little ears… Gene Wilder did!…yes, Daisy was a Shropshire too…the winsome wooly his character fell for in Woody Allen’s “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About…”

Anyone with an inside line to actor Gene Wilder or director Woody Allan? If they loved the Shropshire enough to give Daisy a starring role,  maybe they’d be interested in helping our fight to save them…? Handsome chap below is the late Wholearth Elliot. Docile, easy to handle…but he was a wilder sheep too—a good example of why heritage Shropshires are well suited to the wilds of Canada, that is.  Our heritage sheep…adapted to our country, our cold, our climate. The Shropshire is ‘wool’ suited to our weather with dense, tight wool that keeps their cherry coloured skin warm and dry out in the falling snow. Let’s not lose the entire breed after so many years of them adapting so well here. Please click here for “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Shrops” …and here to sign the petition to save them..
