For 4-H exhibiting you need a black faced lamb, Suffolk or Hampshire. Judges tend to be very biased against maternal white faced lambs. And ironically, it seems they want them anorexic thin too. Another thing is the rules specifically state that lambs that are docked too short on the tail will be disqualified, but the judges will ignore that rule. Our kids showed sheep for years and it was laughable what always placed first.
