"The Rainbow-Colored Sheep" is a short story told from the perspective of a lamb who doesn't fit in with the ideals of his flock due to the fact that his fleece is not white but brightly striped with all the colors of the rainbow. Though he has been encouraged to hide his colors in flour or chalk, the rainbow-colored sheep refuses.
