IT MUST be one of the most delightful things to watch: newborn lambs cavorting in woolly jumpers.
However, this footage hides the heartbreaking devastation caused by the severe drought gripping Queensland and New South Wales.
These lambs - between two days and a week old -lost their starving mothers as the crippling conditions ravage the parched rural paddocks in Leyburn.
Unable to survive the winter nights without their mothers' warmth, the lambs instead have been kitted out with knitted jumpers.
The nappies are just an essential part of toilet training!
