The Jubilee is being celebrated in Cawthorne, near Barnsley with a spot of sheep racing.
The participants may need a little encouragement to get round the course but sheep racing is the latest big thing at Cawthorne, near Barnsley.
Regular races are now being held at Cannon Hall Farm. In keeping with the Jubilee celebrations the sheep have been given regal names.
No money changes hands though so no-one is in danger of being “fleeced” at the bookies.
A new kind of racing is arriving in South Yorkshire.
To mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee staff at Cannon Hall Farm in Barnsley have organised nine days of Royal Ascot themed racing, involving sheep instead of horses.
It was first introduced last year and was so popular they are doing it again. 20 sheep have been trained to take part in the event.
