With the island's annual King of the Sheep contest imminent Ted puts the house's entire winter heating allowance on a sheep called Chris to win. Chris's owner Fargo Boyle tells Ted that Chris has heard about the notorious Beast of Craggy island and is nervous so Ted helps Fargo get Chris into winning condition. Then Ted hears that there is no Beast, it was a ploy by Fargo to increase the odds on Chris. Unfortunately in exposing the plot Ted gets Chris disqualified and loses his money.
