Trivia Blitz: The Black Sheep

October 5, 2008

Since early times black sheeps were considered less valuable than white ones because their wool can not be readily dyed. Shepherds also believed that balck sheep frightened the other sheep. Fortunately, they were rare, as most domestic sheep range from white to light brown. By the late 18th century, the expression black sheep came to be applied to disgraced people.
