She's just baa-rilliant at jumping!


A little Donegal sheep has emerged as a rising athletic talent after being caught on camera doing some impressive leaps.

Sophie, who lives with a Ramelton family, was seen practising with high hopes to be in next year’s RDS show-jumping event.

Sophie’s young trainers found she was a bit of a copy cat (or lamb) who likes to mimic their actions, so they have been raising the bar to see what hidden skills she has.

Her owners are proud to see her coming on in leaps and bounds. As more people see the video, the more they are seeing Sophie as a star sheep.

“If anybody has any ducks, donkeys and goats that need to be trained send them our way!” – they told Donegal Daily.

“Dingle has Fungi but Ramelton’s got Sophie!!!”

There are plenty more videos of Sophie’s intensive training – perhaps she’s trying to get in shape for sh-wimsuit season!
