Moonbear, I've just found another possible research project for you using your sheep!

http://arxiv.org/abs/0711.3804

You can verify the physics of what these people have calculated by letting your sheep head-butt and determine if there's any brain damage! :)

Don't you just love it when different fields of study come together, in a collision no less?

:rofl: I think the inch thick bone on the top of the head and the cushioning of the sinuses greatly contributes. But, I've also never seen such vigorous head-butting in the polled breeds (that means the ones that genetically lack horns).
