Bonus: checkered sheep

Maxine Scott, a farmer from Scotland, created Tartan sheep. She claims that lambs are born white but their hair turns checkered with age. Then traditional kilts and blankets are made of it. These sheep are similar to regular ones, the only difference is that they love Irn-Bru soda and biscuits.

Of course, this is just a myth — in reality, she treats her sheep with a special dye. But even so, tourists love it!
