A black lamb from Gloucestershire, UK has white markings on its side that appear to spell out the word 'Lamb'.
“Lambie”, as the Stevenage family of Edge, near Stroud, Gloucestershire has dubbed him, is one of four black lambs born on Good Friday, just a few weeks ago. The family farms as a hobby and their flock includes heritage sheep including the Jacob and Lleyn varieties – Lambie is a cross between those two.
James (above), the 13-year-old middle child in the Stevenage family, noticed Lambie's unusual markings one day as he was helping move the new lambs from one field to another. “When I saw the lamb, at first it looked like it said 'I am Y',” explained James to a reporter from The Mirror. “But when I looked again, it looked like it said 'lamb'.” Check it out... it's not obvious at first glance but once seen, it cannot be unseen!
“My mum and dad have been here for seven years and they've never seen anything like it,” adds James. The Stevenages currently are shepherding 11 lambs but young Lambie's got his own way of standing out in a crowd. Kudos to James for being the first to notice Lambie's remarkable markings... you won't be pulling the wool over this lad's eyes any time soon!
