My meanderings around YouTube have turned up this charming film clip of life on the farm in Upton Magna in Shropshire (February 1956).

February 1956 looks like a very chilly late winter season but the lambs are not fazed one bit. The 60 year old shepherd is on hand to bottle feed any lambs that need it.

And a delightful take on Mary and her Little Lambs from 1937.

And with more groaning puns than you ever thought possible,

a story from Weston near Newark in Nottinghamshire (1952) of a real live bar-lamb!

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Hope you enjoyed it!
