Jacketed Lambs Near the Abbey





Driving down the back lanes near Furness Abbey I spotted that the new born lambs all seemed to be wearing bright orange fluorescent jackets. Was this elf n safety gone mad, did the farmer have some strange PVC fetish, or was he a sheepish follower of fashion? It turns out that these plastic sheep jackets are the latest high tech way of preventing hypothermia in new born lambs.
