Sheep figures out how to use a trampoline

September 10th, 2020

Having a trampoline is a joy to have. Such a simple concept, yet profoundly vivid in many childhood memories. It’s so much fun to just jump and feel weightless as you encounter ecstasy with each leap.

So much fun, in fact, a sheep decided to play with one! An incredible video clip shows a sheep continuously jumping for joy on someone’s trampoline. This isn’t CGI or the movies: this is real life. What you’re about to see may cause cuteness overload.

This one truly made our hearts flutter! The giggles made by the little child is what truly makes this video too adorable to handle.

We first see the sheep frolicking on the trampoline with great energy. She seems incredibly excited to be able to bounce with all her fluffy awesomeness. And she keeps going and going without ever seemingly stopping.

Then, we hear what appears to be soft laughter coming from where the video footage is being taken. Suddenly, sounds from a child giggling fills the airwaves with cuteness as she looks amused by the sheep’s odd behavior. The little human clearly could not contain her emotions as she was entertained by the sheep’s incessant jumping.

The little sheep appears to hear the giggles and quickly turns to face her viewers. Now she’s just showing off! She quickly resumes back to her jumping as she is clearly not bored. Side note: props to the durability of this trampoline.

Finally, We can see the sheep take a humble look at the surface she stands upon in curiosity. I’m sure she’s as baffled at the trampoline as we are to seeing her bounce on it. Regardless, she asked no more questions and resumed her merry business.

The video concludes with more happy jumps from the funny sheep as she is not looking to slow down one bit. Someone better call Little Bo-Beep because it seems like one of her sheep has gone missing!

Here’s a little backstory to the invention of the trampoline

You may find that it’s come a long way from what it was originally intended to do! The first-ever modern trampoline was built in 1934 at the University of Iowa by George Nissen and Larry Griswold.

The two envisioned a variety of athletic games that used the trampoline as its main focal point. One such game was called Spaceball, where two teams of two on a single trampoline attempt to propel the ball through a middle wall to hit a target on the other sides end wall.

An interesting fact about trampolines is that they were developed and originally used by train astronauts as a training tool for other sports.

They clearly didn’t think about making space games for sheep that’s for sure. As this video shows, it’s safe to say that they would make for great television.

There’s clearly no lack of endurance from this sheep. Her ability to continuously gain solid vertical jumps and be able to rotate her body so swiftly almost makes you believe this can have a fan base.

And what about how high she jumps? With hops like that, it’s a shame she hasn’t been drafted for the Harlem Sheep Trotters.

A special shout-out to the cameraman for being such a sport and enjoying himself along the process. It’s not every day you get to film something as strange as a sheep jumping non-stop on your trampoline, so you might as well have some fun.
