Lambs on this farm have been given orange raincoats to protect them from the cold and wet weather.

The enterprising farmer has issued them to the lambs, which are a bit more delicate when born, which means instead of being kept indoors they can run around outdoors with their more sturdy brothers and sisters.

“My neighbour lives away from the farm, so I usually check the sheep for him When I was there on Saturday, I caught the flash of an eye with my lamp and saw a fox carrying the dead lamb. I took careful aim and took the fox with a shot to the neck.
