Sheep with Bird on Head Pin
Inspired by the Rare Breeds of Colonial Williamsburg, this pin features a colorful painting by Sue Nagle of a sheep with a bird nesting on its head. The background is a lovely field of flowers of blue, white and red.
Colonial Williamsburg's Rare Breeds program was begun in 1986 to preserve genetic diversity in livestock. Some of the selected breeds represent animals that could have been present in Williamsburg during the 18th century according to historical research. The program complements Colonial Williamsburg's living history interpretation by portraying another aspect of daily life in colonial Virginia. Rare is defined as having fewer than 1,000 animals registered annually in North America. The breeds in the foundation's program - the Leicester Longwool sheep, American Cream Draft horses and America Milking Red Devons have fewer than 200 animals registered annually in North America.
