    Default The newborn lamb who needs an extra woolly layer to cope with the cold

    This tiny, orphaned lamb cuts quite a sight in his woolly jumper, which is helping him to cope with sub-zero temperatures this winter.
    Affectionately known as Jack Frost, the little lamb, born remarkably early on January 1, thinks nothing of wearing an extra woolly layer.
    The tiny knitted garment, meant for a human baby, fits perfectly and Jack likes nothing more than snuggling up in it during the freezing weather.

    Cold air baa-ned: Jack Frost the tiny lamb copes with the sub-zero temperatures thanks to his new woolly jumper

    Abandoned at birth, little Jack, who is one of twins, was rescued by volunteers at Manor Farm Country Park, near Southampton, Hampshire.
    Farm manager Andrew Davies said: 'We think his mother just couldn't cope with the two lambs.
    'This could be something to do with the fact that they were born out of season or just that she didn't have that important maternal instinct, which does happen sometimes.'
    Concerned about the risk of the tiny new born perishing in the cold weather, volunteers at the farm did all they could to keep Jack warm.
    Mr Davies said: 'We brought in some hay bales and a heat lamp for him - then one volunteer had the novel idea of giving him a jumper.
    'She trawled all the local charity shops and was lucky enough to find a knitted wool jumper among the baby clothes.
    'It fits Jack perfectly - it's like it was made just for him.'
    Happy to be wrapped up against the cold, the only time Jack isn't wearing the fetching pully is when it's being washed.
    Mr Davies said: 'During washing day Jack's jumper goes up on the washing line with all the other laundry - it's quite a funny sight to see.'
    The friendly lamb has quickly become a favourite with farm volunteers, and visitors are flocking in to see the woolly spectacle.

    Mr Davies said: 'Everyone thinks Jack is so cute and they think his jumper is so funny - they all see the irony of a sheep wearing a woolly jumper.
    'He's very human-friendly. He loves the attention just as much as he loves his jumper - he snuggles up in it just like any baby would snuggle up to something warm.'
    The little lamb has adapted well to life on the new farm, seeing many of his carers as his surrogate mothers.
    And, according to Mr Davies, the farm volunteers are happy to play the maternal role for little Jack.
    He said: 'We all see Jack as another member of our family.
    'He's not hard work to look after at all. Everyone loves taking care of him because he's got such a lovely character.'
    Mr Davies is delighted that Jack had adapted so well to life at the farm but is concerned that if he continued to grow so quickly he will soon be too big for his new jumper.
    He said: 'It's great that Jack is putting on weight but he's putting it on so fast it wont be long before the jumper is too small and we'll have to find something else for him.'
    Jack will be at the park for a few months until he is big enough to be returned to his mother's herd at a farm in East Tisted, near Alton.
