Can Sheep really walk on water?

One of the really interesting features of Mulranny Co Mayo is the salt marsh, behind the beach. It is made up of lots of little islands, when the tide is out you can walk across it, usually when the tide is in it looks like a big patch work of tiny islands. It is grazed by sheep and sometimes when the tide is coming in they can be seen negotiating their way across the islands and onto the "mainland" Sometimes when the tide is at its highest the islands are completely submerged and a few of the sheep get stranded. But they are very clever and dont panic, they simply stand and wait for the tide to turn! This picture was taken this morning about ten minutes before sunrise.
