A baby lamb abondoned by his mom is keeping warm by wearing a wool sweater.
The lamb, affectionately known as Jack Frost was one of two born to its mother in England Jan. 1, which is out of season.
The farm’s manager isn’t sure whether Jack’s mom just couldn’t handle to babies in the off-season or if she didn’t have the proper maternal instinct. Whatever it was, it was left to farm workers to adopt the lamb and keep it warm in the sub-zero temperatures.
Some extra hay bales and a heat lamp helped, but one volunteer had the bright idea of buying a knitted wool sweater meant for a baby. It fits Jack perfectly.
The sweater has made Jack a favorite on the farm, and visitors have shown up looking for the little lamb wearing a wool sweater.
