*Updates later this year will include features relating to stumbling or skill use while running.
At some point during a race, a sheep will reach its top speed, which is known as its Dash-time, and is indicated by a gauge alongside the other sheep attributes. A sheep's stamina is continually being depleted while they run, and during their Dash-time, it is used significantly more.
Stumbling is a random event that occurs during a race. When a sheep stumbles during a race, its speed decreases for a short period of time. The frequency of sheep stumbling is influenced by both their Balance and Spirit stats. The faster a sheep is running, the greater its chance of becoming disoriented and stumbling. A better Balance stat gives sheep a better chance of staying on their feet and avoiding stumbling.
