The Labels of the Bo-Peep Sheep Sanctuary

As everybody knows, to a Welsh farmer his sheep are more than livestock.  The Bo-Peep Sanctuary both helps to find lost sheep and repatriates them with their owners.

Over the years the Sanctuary has a number of publicity labels for its mail, including  ‘Have you see this sheep’,  Wanted labels and even Xmas mail stamps.

The Sanctuary also issued a booklet of labels for the National Sheep Dog Week in 1955.
