Who Needs a Sheepdog – Watch this drone herding sheep (video)

Two brothers in Ireland, one a farmer and the other a drone operator/photographer, have collaborated to produce the world’s first drone sheepdog.

Does the drone do a good job of herding the sheep – judge for yourself:

Once trained, a sheepdog probably doesn’t require as much overseeing and human interaction, but then again, a drone doesn’t require constant care and feeding either. Although, I can’t help wondering how a drone would handle some of Ireland’s notoriously inclement weather conditions.
