Happy for No Reason: Extreme Sheep

Filed under: Humor, Video — jonathanfoust @ 2:24 pm

Being away on retreat for a week resulted in some great video references.  I grew up on a sheep farm and actively tended our herd from about the age of six, hauling water, feed, culling lambs, helping out with shearing.  While we had a collie who sometimes surprised us with his herding instincts, in England I got a hit of the mastery of sheepmen with their dogs and you really see it here on display.  It might strike you as a bit rough on the sheep, but from what I know of people who work so closely with animals, this is more of a display of creativity than any harm to the sheep.

Thank you, Mark.

  1. I absolutely loved this – don’t know if I saw it here first or somewhere else. Sent it to my friend in England – I think he was inspired. 🙂
