Found trying to suckle from his dead mother, his plight touched the heart of a Good Samaritan who was able to secure his release.
No sooner had Harry donned a warm jacket, downed a bottle of life-enhancing milk and found a place in our hearts, than we heard the words “incoming” and little Harry brought our number of rescued lambs this winter to twelve.
