A three-year-old girl proved that the hard life of a farm is no match for her when she skillfully delivered a lamb all by herself.

The incredible footage shows the unidentified youngster behind the ewe about to give birth while her mother films and talks her through the procedure.

After rolling up her sleeves, the youngster says she can feel the lamb’s feet and sets about pulling them towards her in order to locate its head.

She later announces that she has two feet in her hands and that she is able to feel the animal’s mouth – meaning the ewe is close to giving birth.

The youngster continues pulling the lamb from the ewe without flinching – she only stops to announce that it is a little slippery at one point.

Her mother then asks her daughter if she can manage on her own or whether she would like her to step in and take over.

But the confident youngster, who is entirely focussed on the job in hand, continues to pull the lamb from the pregnant ewe.

The video is believed to have been captured on Croes-y-gaer Farm in Raglan, Monmouthshire, according to Wales Online.

Since being posted to the internet a number of people have commented on the remarkable, albeit unusual footage.

One viewer wrote: ‘She is so brave and smart,’ while another added: ‘Future veterinarian at work.’
