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.
