Sheep tossing & other delights

We spent today at the 2005 Scottish Highland Games... what a treat! :) Did you know there's a sport called "sheep tossing" (pictured)?

We tried to find Arn a kilt in the Duncan family tartan, but no such luck.

What's the sheep? Looks like a big rock or wooden lump of some kind.

Or a sheep that's so scared, it's pulled in its extremities, turtle style!

The "sheep" is a twenty-pound burlap bag full of sawdust and more burlap, or some such thing.

The guy you see in the pic here on OST is apparently the best sheep-tosser in the world, according to some of those in the crowd around us. I know his mom is so proud! :D
