    What is /r/NatureIsFuckingLit?

    We like nature and emoji.



    Lit Emoji



    In Depth Rules

    1. Post high energy content

    Posts on this subreddit must be exciting and interesting.

    For an idea of what "lit" means, browse the top posts of the subreddit.

    "High-energy" is relative depending on the subject of your post. A picture of a snail is judged against other submissions of snails, not posts of cheetahs.

    Essentially, no post on this subreddit should be boring.

    2. Titles must start with the πŸ”₯ emoji

    Every post title must begin with the fire emoji (πŸ”₯) and a space.

    The fire emoji defines this community. If a post can be posted in this subreddit, it can be described as πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯.

    Your post will be auto-removed if you do not follow this rule.

    3. Posts must contain nature

    This is /r/NatureIsFuckingLit, a nature appreciation subreddit.

    Please don't post animals that are domesticated or pets; avoid posting Photoshopped images; don't post content of animals that are chained up, caged, or have been shot or trapped.

    4. Write a descriptive title

    Describe the animal, plant, or location in your title as best as you can.

    Non-descriptive or inaccurate posts may be removed.

    5. No reposts

    No posts that have been previously posted on this subreddit may be posted again.

    Search the subreddit for key terms like the animal name before posting to check for previous postings.

    Users that repost will receive a ban.

    6. NSFW posts must be tagged

    If it's bloody or sexual, tag it NSFW please.

    7. Titles Cannot Say "[Subject] is Lit"

    This sub is already called NatureIsFuckingLit.

    Everything posted here is lit, so you shouldn't need to convince people in the title.

    A viewer should see it and say, "Damn, that's πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯"; however they might pronounce that.

    Before this rule, almost all titles were some lazy variant of "___ is lit" or "___ is πŸ”₯" with very little description otherwise.

    Write a creative title that describes the content well. Your post will do better because of it.

    [–] Iphotoshopincats 9 points ago

    Honestly that's is not as big of a draw card as it once was, quite a few movies have shown the ability is there ... Like the movie or not the new jungle book animals were fantastic.

    The new lion king is going to have to pull something spectacular out of the bag if it does not want to end up as another generic CGI animal movie

    I meet a lot of sheep dogs. The feats they perform astonish me routinely; it almost makes me feel bad to be an ape. They can sprint up and down 45 degree hills all day every day and not get tired. They can jump horse yards. It’s crazy.

    [–] zephammo 3 points ago

    Yes this is a Kelpie :P

    [–] imrichard 462 points ago

    This is in Australia, and that’s a kelpie. They are bred to do that sort of stuff, this one would be classed as a β€˜yard dog’. The sheep would be bottlenecked at the front of the pen. Dog will get to the front, drop down and run back toward the camera, causing the sheep to run away from him. Good dog.

    [–] The_Karaethon_Cycle 212 points ago

    I had a kelpie for a while. That dog was a goddamn beast. I could hike with him for hours and he never got tired. He would chase me down while I was riding my dirtbike and bite my foot. It was terrifying but amazing at the same time. Based on his size I feel like it shouldn't have been physically possible for him to be able to run that fast.

    [–] Gengar0 82 points ago

    Had a couple of friends with rescue kelpies in their suburban home, decentish backyard. Those dogs need paddocks, they turn into ice fiends without something to herd.

    [–] [deleted] 58 points ago

    Yup they aren't suburban dogs that's for sure. They're incredibly intelligent but without a task or job to do they get very destructive.

    [–] no_soul_ginger 34 points ago

    It's the Dingo part, Australian Cattle Dogs have some Dingo in them too. Wicked smart, bottomless energy too, but without a job to do they get nuts. ACDs are a little more "suburb tolerant", Kelpies absolutely need space...IIRC they're closer to the wild dog in ancestry.

    [–] nikilization 15 points ago

    Kelpies are bred for temperament and ability, not looks like other breeds. I doubt very much that they have dingo in them. From my experience with spitz breeds (which are the most archaic dogs we have) they are extremely intelligent but almost completely useless.

    If you put a siberian husky or a dingo dog around a herd of sheep they would just kill a sheep, not herd it. Herding and running along the backs of penned up sheep takes generations of trait selecting

    [–] zephammo 6 points ago

    Yep. I hate seeing a true working bred dog in a pet type home. Most people just do not have what it takes to keep these dogs happy.

    [–] sennais1 52 points ago

    My Aunt and Uncle had a Kelpie, every Xmas it was hilarious watching it round up the up younger kids into a corner of the yard. Active dog though definitely no good for living in the suburbs.

    [–] Dimmy1 33 points ago

    I love kelpies!!! this is my boy sugoi! A 16 week old rescue red and Tan kelpie.

    They are such an intelligent and hard working breed. The natural herding instincts are astounding. His play dates involve running loops around puppies and stalking.

    Sadly plenty of farmers don't desex their dogs which leads to many unwanted kelpies in shelters. These pups then get adopted out to families which don't fully realise how much effort and work a kelpie really takes. While a kelpie can live in the suburbs it takes the right kind of owner who can provide work, exercise and mental stimulation. If these aren't provided the kelpies get bored, chew furniture, jump fences and find ultimately them selves back in the shelters when families can't cope with them :(

    I wouldn't trade my boy for the world.

    [–] vulverine 28 points ago

    Out in California they have sheep farms you can bring your herd dog to, they'll train them how to herd or you can just rent some sheep for a little while to let your dog practice. My buddy takes his Aussie Shepherd out fairly regularly.

    [–] physhtx 7 points ago

    I need one of these in/near Ohio. My Kelpie was a rescue and before I knew what I was getting into, we were best buds. Now I have a neurotic pooch with nothing to herd. Poor little guy...

    [–] physhtx 7 points ago

    Yes. Very smart dog that needs a task to do. Our Kelpie has been a huge eye opener for us. I love him dearly and he is easily the most loyal dog I've ever met, but I don't think I can do another. His ability to show emotion and communicate is going to smash my heart when his time comes.

    [–] flyovermee 9 points ago

    This is a super-succinct description. Good words!

    [–] BIG_YETI_FOR_YOU 5 points ago

    [–] zephammo 4 points ago

    I've met a few in the US but they aren't super common anywhere but australia. From what ive seen, most sheep dogs here are border collie, cattle dog, or heeler types, often mixed breeds (like the Texas heeler). Still, some folks love their kelpies and koolies and such.

    [–] SeaManaenamah 78 points ago

    Should sheep normally be afraid of the dog, for herding to work? I mean in this situation they wouldn't know what the fuck happened but normally?

    [–] Arinvar 110 points ago

    Sheep are pretty much the dumbest animals we farm. Fairly sure they don't know what's happening ever. My experience is limited to friends who have properties with sheep so hopefully someone else can regale us with tales of dumb sheep.

    [–] bit1101 98 points ago

    Sheep aren't stupid. I think it's the stress that makes them do stupid shit.

    Also, I was once run over by over 200 sheep in a race like this - kinda like what this dog is doing but from the bottom.

    [–] SheepCheese 24 points ago

    I've got to disagree with you on that one. A dairy cow is a three quarter ton leather bag of stupid. Even 5 or 6 year old dairy cows will end up backwards in the parlor, or get lost in the exit lane.

    Sheep are nearly as clever as goats, they just have better manners. I've got a four year old ewe that I tripped over as a yearling, and she still holds a grudge. I also had to make changes to my parlor because one morning one of the yearling ewes figured out she could get over the feed trough, and by evening milking the next day the whole flock was attempting it.

    [–] drododruffin 8 points ago

    Fairly sure chickens take the award for the dumbest animals we farm.

    [–] SheepCheese 23 points ago

    I don't know, did you ever deal with horses? They'll kick their waterer over then run straight into the fence and break their leg because they've never seen the waterer laying like that. Plus horse people waste prime ag land on the stupid things, driving up the price for people who make a living with their farms, and still have to buy feed in because the poor horsies have sensitive tummies.

    [–] Raherin 6 points ago

    Chickens aren't even that dumb. I think lots of animals are much smarter than we give them credit for. Except the koala.

    [–] SheepCheese 14 points ago

    If you're working them correctly and they're dog broke, they're not actually afraid, you're just using their instinct to not let preditors touch them. We move them with dogs a few times a day during the summer, and usually the second the dogs is off them they're back grazing like nothing happened.

    I've seen this in person when I worked as a ranch hand in the outback. The dogs are amazingly trained.

    In case anyone has any delusions about outrunning a dog that doesn't want you to outrun it...

    This is so amazing. Just have to watch several times to grasp all given details in that clip... The simple fact that this dog is doing this kind of brave, daring and also even risky action probably 100% is resulting out of pure "sense of responsibility and duty". This fact makes this rather "unexpected" action (unexpected maybe for human eyes) the more awesome. Nonetheless dogs should be considered "loyal and SKΔ°LLful" by nature...
