Town stages street sheep race
Hundreds of fans lined the streets of a Dumfriesshire to see Scotland's first town centre sheep race.
Sheep were ridden through the streets of Moffat by custom made knitted jockeys in several heats over the day.
Members of the public were also able to place £1 bets at the event which was won by a sheep named Lingonberry.
Organiser Thomas MacDonald said he now hopes to turn the event into an annual competition.
"It is a new event for us in Moffat and we believe it is the first in Scotland to be held on public streets," he told the BBC.
"We hope it will become an annual event, not just one day but extend to two days and eventually make a week long feature of it."
