Pulling the wool over fairgoers' eyes

http://www.jewishworldreview.com | (UPI) The Australian drought has been so tough on sheep herds that graziers are making cardboard or mechanical replicas to exhibit at a local show.

The Sydney Sun-Herald says the show must go on -- including the traditional sheep exhibit -- so woolgrowers in the New South Wales-Queensland border area around Cunnamulla are replicating the merino, Corriedale or Border Leicester.

Cunnamulla's Show Society president Alan White says imagination is key but the sheep cannot be a drawing, must look like sheep and be moveable.

White says most farmers lost up to 80 percent of their sheep and had only breeding stock left, which were in poor condition and not ready for prime time.
