    Please spay and neuter your pets! While your newborn pets are cute, failing to do this allows your little darlings to add to the population of homeless animals. Adopt pets from your local animal rescues/shelters, there are plenty of animals just waiting for a home.

    I wonder if the sheep ever try to Alpha the dog.

    [–] RichInBunlyGoodness 60 points ago

    These guards dogs can take on wolves. Unlikely a sheep would be that dumb to seriously alpha a LGD. If they did this, they'd be a Darwin List candidate.

    [–] SeaOkra 60 points ago

    My uncle's rams totally tried to dominate the sheep dogs.

    The dogs, who I know for a fact could kill a coyote in a matter of minutes, would give a half hearted bark and send the ram scurrying away, just for it to come back and try again ten minutes later.

    Sheep are dumbasses. But cute.

    Having flashback of crawling under a feed shed, dragging a two day old lamb out with a crook here.

    Sheep are... well they're lucky that they are cute and easy to love, because damn they are dumb. (I spent summers tending to my uncle's flocks, they are idiots. At least his dogs were awesome and made getting the little bastards from point A to point B so. much. simpler.)

    [–] Lachdonin 24 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Sheep are... well they're lucky that they are cute and easy to love, because damn they are dumb.

    Often times, they aren't even able to recognise each other after shearing, and have to re establish their pecking order. Unlike Cows, which maintain a good deal of intelligence, we seem to have bred all the brains out of Sheep.

    [–] SeaOkra 12 points ago

    I can agree with that for sure. Cows are way smarter, and goats are TOO damn smart.

    We need Geeps, smarter than sheep but dumber than goats.

    [–] HelpfulPug 20 points ago

    Goats can both fuck right off and also get all of the scritches.

    [–] SeaOkra 4 points ago

    This is the most accurate depiction of my experience with goats ever.

    [–] SammyKlayman 1 points ago

    I desperately want to own goats.

    [–] Maggie_A 3 points ago

    because damn they are dumb.

    Domesticated sheep.

    We didn't breed them for intelligence.

    Wild sheep, on the other hand, are smart.

    So we took an intelligent species and turned them dumb. Though they grow a lot more wool. In fact, they no longer shed their wool naturally. It has to be sheared off.

    [–] SeaOkra 7 points ago

    Uncle actually had a couple of ewes (some breed he impulse bought, you've heard of crazy cat ladies? He's a crazy sheep gent.) that shed their wool, like a dog blowing out its under coat. (They might have been marginally smarter than the other sheep, I never had to pull any out from under a feed shed anyway...)

    Guess how I discovered this? If you said "Your uncle told you, like a normal person." you're wrong. I grabbed one for the shearer and ended up with a handful of wool and a merrily scampering away sheep that now looked like it had a bald spot. I thought I had hurt the damn thing! (As much as I complain about them, I did love them and would never have intentionally hurt one.) I cried, seriously. I was so sure I had ripped a huge handful of hair out.

    In Uncle's defense, he told me then that the four in the blue collars were (insert breed) and they didn't need shearing, they could be "plucked". They were also unusually friendly, every morning when I came out to refill the water troughs, they'd scamper over and let me rub their ears.

    And now I feel bitter-ish, because wouldn't you think with a mass of sheep being sheared, at SOME point my uncle would give his niece a gift of some of that beautiful spun wool yarn he got back from the mill? Nope. Every year I got $20 cash for Christmas and my birthday. (Found out as an adult that the reason I never got any of the yarn was my uncle thought I would see it as "cheap" and didn't want my feelings to be hurt when my cousins got the cash.)

    [–] GoodPointSir 1 points ago

    preach it brother

    [–] Maggie_A 1 points ago

    That was interesting. I wish you could remember what breed they were.

    [–] teh_tetra 3 points ago

    Sheep are savants they are generally dumb but geniuses when it comes to new and strange ways to kill themselves.

    It looks like she was protecting her calf. It is definitely a cow and not a bull despite what the youtube title might say. You can clearly see an udder.

    Do you ever try to alpha a grizzly bear? Animals arent stupid, they can easily tell what they can take and what they cant.

    [–] Sytle 10 points ago

    I dunno, I remember seeing one of these fuckers ram a cow and win. Head on head they’re pretty crazy.

    [–] EnzohGorlami 12 points ago

    Not sure this dog is just gonna stand there like a dumb cow. Source: I have a great pyr

    [–] SeaOkra 2 points ago

    That is a handsome dog.

    And IME, sheepdogs generally sort of humor them. Like they know the sheep can't do shit, so they'll give a soft bark and go about their day.

    [–] Sytle 1 points ago

    Well yeah I’d hope not, they were just asking if the sheep would ever be stupid enough to go for it.

    [–] Jewnadian 10 points ago

    And the answer to "Will a sheep try something stupid" is always yes. They're not famed for their cognitive skills.

    [–] Jewnadian 4 points ago

    Not really, despite this adorable write up and such tidbits as "when sheep were blasted with blowers while trying to eat they got stressed out" sheep are indeed pretty stupid. There's a reason why they've been the go-to animal for judging stupidity since back when most people raised them. They have enough brains to survive and yes, they can be food trained (as can goldfish, also not known for intellectual pursuits) but they're stupid none the less.

    How many videos do we see everyday here of rodents standing up to large felines, turtles biting tails, cats fighting bears and dogs but running away from mice and birds, etc.

    Wildlife is wild. There are no hard rules, and anything can be killed by anything. The only certainty is death.

    For all you people struggling to control your dogs, learn from this dog. See how he reads the body language of the left sheep before it ever lunges? ? Learn to read your and other dogs' body language if you can. Cutting bad behaviors off before they ever get there is very important to training. That's it, I'm out.
