Why cant I ping eBGP from one router across 1 hop to a loopback?

I configure 3 routers in a line each with their own addresses and loopbacks. I then create bgp neighborship between them and advertise their loopbacks. I can ping from R1 to R2's loopback or R2 to R3's loopback but I am unable to ping from R3 to R1's loopback.

Did I miss some configuration or is that just how it is by nature?
