YouTube Video of the Week: Mesmerising Mass Sheep Herding

New Zealand is famous for its enormous flocks of sheep, but when they are being herded and moved from field to field, it really does take some skill. And because the sheep follow each other, once they start running through the gate, they all follow in the same direction.

What makes this particular YouTube video so special is the way that it was filmed, high up in the air, presumably using a remote control drone helicopter camera. The sheep appear as tiny specks of white in a green field, moving rather like sand in an egg timer.

Being set to gentle classical music really does make this unique video quite mesmerising and hard to stop watching. Uploaded to the Caters Clips channel, the video racked up an impressive one million views in less than two weeks and began trending almost immediately.
