Spaniel plays mum for lambs

Playing mum /Rex

A springer spaniel is helping out on her owner’s farm – by playing mum for four lambs.

Jess even feeds the Dorset Horn lambs, which could not be fed by their own mother, using a bottle held in her mouth.

Owner Louise Moorhouse, who has 270 sheep on her 180-acre farm in Devon, says Jess is a great help.

She said: “She’s been doing it ever since she was a puppy. I taught her to hold the milk bottle in her mouth and she did the rest.

“It’s very funny when she runs across the field gripping the bottle.”

And the multi-tasking mutt doesn’t just get involved with lamb feeding.

She also happily carries buckets of feed and farm equipment to wherever they’re needed.

As a reward, Jess apparently often enjoys licks, nuzzles and belly rubs from grateful sheep.
