Footage shows the drone following the sheep in a bid to try and get them to stick together and get to the corner of a field.
But one sheep seems to want to carve her own way in the world and continues to try and ignore the drone’s instructions.
She is seen becoming more and more agitated as the innocent herding drone tries to encourage it to join the rest of its flock.
The ewe eventually becomes so enraged by the presence of the drone that it headbutts it straight out of the air

A tomcat showed off his right hook in Petaluma, California, by taking an impressive swipe at a mini drone when it flew to close for his liking
In a clip recorded in Petaluma, California, an unsympathetic cat was seen taking down a similar miniature aircraft with just one swipe.
The ginger and white feline showed off his natural hunting skills with an impressive right hook when the drone flew too close for comfort.
The drone buzzes and moves around erratically up the stairs towards him, where he can be seen backing away slightly.
The cat feebly attempts to swat it away before backing up again into the darkness of the landing.
In the final attack, the cat pays attention to every move the drone makes before delivering a single swift, accurate strike which takes it down immediately.
People behind the camera sound impressed at his speedy reflexes.
An adorable clip shows Ein the corgi bark and run in circles as a drone flies above her head in a park in Rockville, Maryland
But not all pets hate drones, with some dogs preferring to chase them rather than playing fetch with a ball.
Devann McCarthy, 28, filmed his corgi Ein in a park in Rockville, Maryland, chasing a drone which she spotted flying overhead.
The footage, shared in January last year, shows the owner of the drone flying it lower, encouraging the dog to chase it in a game that lasted for an hour.
And in March last year, when the pandemic hit and people across the globe were forced to stay indoors, one man came up with a genius use for his drone in Cyprus.
Vakis Demetriou shared a video of his dog Oliver walking up a residential street with a small drone following close behind holding the leash.
Demetriou piloted the drone from a nearby balcony while a friend filmed the dog.
