A pair of new-born lambs stand unsteadily in a field dressed in plastic macks

A pair of new-born lambs stand unsteadily in a field dressed in plastic macks. They were fitted with them less than three hours after arriving on a farm near Yalding, Kent. The farmer hopes that the polythene coverings will keep the lambs snug and dry during the critical first two weeks of their lives. Later, of course, the macks will be taken off. The lambs will then be quite warm enough in their sheepskin coats.
January 1976

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this heartwarming print from January 1976, we are transported back in time to witness a truly unique sight. A pair of adorable new-born lambs, barely able to stand on their wobbly legs, grace the frame as they proudly sport plastic macks. These little ones were lovingly dressed less than three hours after arriving at a farm near Yalding, Kent. The farmer's intention behind these unconventional outfits was simple yet profound - ensuring the utmost comfort and protection for these vulnerable creatures during their critical first two weeks of life. The polythene coverings acted as a shield against the elements, keeping them snug and dry amidst unpredictable weather conditions. As we gaze upon this image frozen in time, it is impossible not to feel a sense of awe and admiration for the farmer's dedication to nurturing these precious lives. And while the lambs may appear slightly comical in their temporary attire, it is important to remember that every decision made by this caring guardian was driven solely by love and concern. Soon enough, those plastic macks will be gently removed from their delicate bodies. As nature intended, these resilient lambs will find warmth within their own sheepskin coats. This remarkable snapshot serves as a reminder that sometimes even unconventional methods can provide extraordinary results when it comes to safeguarding those who depend on us most – our beloved animals.
