Friday Fun: A Crazy Fast Sheep

Came across this video in my Facebook feed the other day – never knew sheep were so fast. This one has some serious competitive fire!

Hat tip to Running is Funny and Deadspin for the find.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Wow – what a fast animal. I saw a turtle in the middle of the road this morning and wondered if he might be faster than I was today. The humidity was sweltering after some of the rain showers this morning.

  2. We had a similar experience in Schotland (although we were probably a bit slower, since we cycled with luggage on the bikes). Sheep would run ahead of us until they find an escape. It could be scary if you’re coming down a hill!

  3. Gary the goat is no slouch either!

    (nsfw for language, but it’s a video of a goat running alongside a car)

  4. We just got lizzards that try and out run ya on the trails here in Az, and I’m glad they are not as big as sheep! :)
