“Thanks to a local vet and a group of concerned
ecologists, the churra lebrijana breed has been
rescued from extinction”
As ovines (Iberian) go
Shaggy churras were not Best in Show.
Mattress wool? No demand. What a blow!
The breed appeared doomed and de trop.
But now three in Seville bleat hello
To children who watch as they mow
And greet them with glee, all aglow,
There’s a chance that their numbers will grow.
