Amazing live herd behavior

October 10, 2009

Leave it to the Brits to capture genuine herd behavior in this remarkable video. Be sure to wait for the finale at 1:30. (The only question is why are they playing the 1812 overture? Didn’t the Yanks win that war?)

Click and enjoy!

    When I watched the video I was thinking of the upcoming UK elections. I couldn’t decide if the sheep were the MP’s or if I had just insulted the sheep.

    I can’t believe they wasted their time to do that…

    Presumably, that 1812 comment was tongue in cheek so I’ll leave it alone. But I don’t doubt that there are in fact folks who will think it really is about that war.

    Kinda like the question: how long was the Hundred Years War? It was 117 years.

    Spencer: Rocky can’t believe that YOU wasted your time watching that. 😉
    At least “they” got some fresh air and exercise !!!

    Did you know that if you put a sheep in a trailer and go around a corner too fast it will fall _into_ the turn? Or if you stop suddenly that they will fall backwards? 🙂

    Do the sheep just compensate for the movement or do they actually topple over. Either way, that’s hilarious. I’m gonna try that with my dog.

    Rocky, thanks for that video, now I can’t play breakout without thinking about them sheep. Pleasure reading your blog. Thanks.

    Dave: Rocky just returned from the supermarket — with some lamp chops in a paper bag on the back seat. He made a sharp turn and stopped short to avoid some geese in the road, and the lamb chops behaved as gravity, momentum, and angular momentum would have predicted. Maybe mutton behaves differently though.

    Gregory: Glad you enjoyed the video, and thanks for commenting!
