We spotted these handsome beasts at Powburn show where they were entered in the best of breed classes.

For each breed, entries can include ewe, ewe lamb, ram, ram lamb and gimmer (a female sheep over one-year-old that will be kept for breeding).

The best of each breed then went into the Overall Champion class, which this year was won by a Texel.

Here's a bit of info on each type of sheep, courtesy of the National Sheep Association.
