Adorable moment sheepdog puppies gambol in the spring sunshine with farmer’s pet lamb

These playful sheepdog puppies have a lot to learn about keeping the flocks in check.

The four-week-old border collies spent the day frolicking in the spring sunshine with their woolly friends.

Luckily for the unnamed pair, Thumper the Texel sheep was gentle with them as they got used to their new field of work.

One day the roles will be reversed but for now the pups were happy to take their cues from Thumper, who showed them around the paddock. 

The adorable scene took place in the tiny hamlet of Gayle near Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales.
