Five Newborn Lambs Dress In Woolly Jumpers To Keep Warm

These adorable photos show five newborn lambs dressed in woolly jumpers to keep them warm.

Tiny lambs Finn, Freddy, Flora, Fleur and Freya were only born five days ago.

They live at Auchingarrich Wildlife Centre, Comrie, Perth and Kinross, but were born at a nearby farm.

The siblings are fed four times a day, and live in a ‘hatchery’ in a little pen.

Shona Coutts, 21, has the enjoyable job of caring for the lambs at the wildlife centre.

She said the woolly jumpers they are dressed in were originally designed for dogs, and cost a couple of pounds from a shop.

Shona said: “We got the lambs from a local farm, they gave us the pet lambs.

“We feed them for a bottle for eight weeks, then they are weaned and go back to the farm.

“It is still cold, so the jumpers were bought from a shop – they are dog jumpers.

“At the moment, the jumpers are how we tell them apart.”

The dinky jumpers are different colours and fit over the lambs’ bodies although they do not have sleeves.

Finn and Freddy have been given red-and-blue jumpers to wear, while their sisters have pink jumpers decorated with white hearts.

Shona added: “It does get hard to tell them apart.

“Some are quieter than others.

“The two boys are the cheeky ones, and Fleur is quite in-your-face.

“She’s very curious.

“The lambs aren’t bothered by wearing the jumpers.”

Lambs have been coming to stay at the wildlife centre for the past decade.

Shona said: “It is quite early in the year for lambs.

“They are fed four times a day, with two feeding sessions that customers can see.

“The little kids love them.”
