'Bald' lamb born with no wool given fluffy fleece

Skippy the lamb

A lamb born without its own wool coat is being kept warm in a borrowed fluffy fleece.

The lamb, nicknamed Skippy because "he looks like a kangaroo", was born on a farm in Wiltshire.

Skippy was abandoned by his mother and is now being hand-reared at the farm.

A jacket has been tailor-made for the lamb with clumps of fleece "fashioned around him"

Ms Fisher, who is looking after Skippy, said: "We've made a little jacket for him to wear out of an old jumper to keep him warm at night."
