I've heard of little animals doing remarkable things, but this is truly amazing:

    @Fernando - well yeah, but that doesn't mean an OZ rabbit can't learn a few new tricks!

    How absolutely darling - not only a herder but a real little drill sergeant!

    This little guy is very odd because having known a bunny personally for 10 years, they are absolutely timid and their main defense is to run away and hide. (however when cornered they have very powerful back legs and won't hesitate to kick somebody in the head).

    That was an overdose of cute for me, too, for the day. Animals don't surprise me when they show more intelligence than they are usually credited for having. They never cease to be just too cute when showing it though.

      Awww!

      How adorable and the little guy seems to be having so much fun!

      I couldn't help but think that he was doing it because he could, lol!

      One day we wanders into the sheep's area and gets frightened but in his panic he runs in the wrong direction. Right as he was about to do a zigzag to change direction, he notices that the sheep start running from him!

      What fun! Instead of him being frightened and run away all of the time, he could make larger animals run away from him and that was the game changer for him. From that day forward, he knew his calling, his new career, and it was something that was fun to boot!

    LOL, that's so cute. I might have to give up my Australian Cattle Dog and Australian Working Kelpie, rabbits eat less and are so much less demanding, and will still work :-)

    Yeah, rabbits COULD kick, and I guess they could bite, but YIKES! At times, the sheep seem to be LOOKING for the rabbit! I guess they are scared of rabbits. I mean you wouldn't expect them to be like this. Dogs are bigger, more likely to bite, can be dangerous, etc... EVERY animal has SOME fear of dogs. Even a big lion won't needlessly bug a dog, it is the old risk/reward thing. But a little rabbit?!?!?

    BTW hopefully everyone knows what I mean. A lion WOULD kill a dog for a snack, but if the choice came up between a dog and a rabbit, all being equal, the lion would probably go for the rabbit. If there were two ways each blocked, and the lion wanted to go down it, they would prefer te one with the rabbit, etc...

    And people, dog lovers or not, would likely be more likely to pet a strange rabbit.

      My blue heeler spent his first year with me trying to herd the cats. Guess I should have given him sheep - the cat thing didn't work well at all.

      Go, wabbit, go.
