ONE YEAR older, but pet lamb Onion still gets a surge of youthful joy when she meets her adopted mum, Karen Hutchinson.

When Onion was born, as the lesser of twins, she was 'minute', reports Karen's husband (and famed livestock photographer) Wayne.

To get her started in life, the wee Swaledale was kept in the house for a while, and as you can see from this clip, despite being fully grown, she is still every inch a pet!

In case you are wondering, Onion is named after the dog in the Scottish TV comedy, 'Still Game'.
