We're about to give Gertie her dinner.

We have to feed the animals every day.

0:00:070:00:10

-And plenty of water, too.

-True, very important.

0:00:100:00:13

Lots of animals make brilliant pets and we love coming to meet you.

0:00:130:00:17

We definitely do. It's fantastic.

0:01:060:01:09

Today, I'm in Dorset to meet Arthur and his pet sheep, Twinkle.

0:01:170:01:21

I like the sound of this. Let's go find them.

0:01:210:01:24

-Hi, Arthur.

-Hi, Ferne.

0:01:290:01:32

-And you must be Nanny, hello.

-Hi, Ferne.

-Who's this?

0:01:320:01:35

-Twinkle.

-She's beautiful.

0:01:350:01:37

Hi, Twinkle.

0:01:370:01:39

She is a very friendly sheep.

0:01:390:01:41

-What type of sheep is she?

-She's a Poll Dorset.

-A Poll Dorset.

0:01:410:01:46

-Yes.

-Hi.

0:01:460:01:47

-So, how long have you had Twinkle?

-I got her when she was a baby.

0:01:470:01:52

-You had her when she was a lamb?

-Yes.

-I hear she is very special.

0:01:520:01:56

She's done something great for you. What did she do?

0:01:560:01:59

She helped me to walk.

0:01:590:02:02

How did she do that?

0:02:020:02:04

When I'd fall over, Twinkle helped me up.

0:02:040:02:08

So, she helped you to stand up. You held on to her?

0:02:080:02:11

Yes. She's very clever.

0:02:110:02:13

That's amazing. You have other sheep, don't you, Arthur?

0:02:130:02:17

-Yes.

-And I hear you do something really fun with them.

0:02:170:02:20

-I take them to shows.

-What do you do at the shows?

0:02:200:02:23

-We win awards.

-And has Twinkle won any awards?

0:02:230:02:27

-Yes. Twinkle's a champion.

-Can you show me some photos?

0:02:270:02:31

-Is that Twinkle when she was tiny?

-Yes.

-Look at the size of her.

0:02:330:02:38

-What's that?

-That's when she won.

0:02:380:02:41

-Is that your trophy with Twinkle?

-Yes.

-That is amazing.

0:02:410:02:45

-But you're not showing her now, are you?

-No.

-Why?

0:02:450:02:48

-Cos she's having a baby.

-She's going to have her own lamb soon?

0:02:480:02:52

-Yes.

-Are you excited?

0:02:520:02:54

-Yes.

-Are you two best friends?

0:02:540:02:56

-Yes.

-That is lovely.

0:02:560:02:58

Rory, could you tell us some more facts about our woolly friends just

0:02:580:03:03

while we give Twinkle a little bit of a cuddle?

0:03:030:03:05

Oh, she's so nice, isn't she?

0:03:050:03:09

Oh, she sure is, Ferne.

0:03:090:03:12

There are two different kinds of Dorset sheep -

0:03:120:03:15

Dorset Horn and Poll Dorset.

0:03:150:03:18

The main difference is that the Poll breed doesn't have horns.

0:03:180:03:22

The Dorset sheep is one of the few breeds of sheep that can produce

0:03:240:03:28

baby lambs all year round. Aw!

0:03:280:03:31

A group of sheep is called a flock and sheep like to move around

0:03:330:03:37

in a flock because it is safer when they're all together.

0:03:370:03:41

Twinkle and the rest of the flock are farm animals and just like all

0:03:460:03:50

animals, they need lots of care and attention.

0:03:500:03:53

Arthur, how do you look after Twinkle and her friends?

0:03:530:03:58

Give them food and get them ready for the shows.

0:03:580:04:01

That sounds like fun. Arthur's sheep come into the barn before shows

0:04:010:04:05

or when they're pregnant and about to have lambs, like Twinkle.

0:04:050:04:09

-And can I help you today?

-Yes. But I've got a surprise first.

0:04:090:04:14

I love surprises!

0:04:140:04:15

These are our newborn lambs.

0:04:210:04:25

Arthur, this is the most amazing surprise ever.

0:04:250:04:28

They're gorgeous. She's so tiny.

0:04:280:04:31

Hello. So, how old is this one?

0:04:310:04:34

Four days old.

0:04:340:04:36

-And this little one?

-Three days old.

0:04:360:04:39

-Are those their mothers in the corner?

-Yes.

-Hello, girls.

0:04:390:04:43

They're keeping a careful watch, aren't they?

0:04:430:04:46

Yes. They're very good mums.

0:04:460:04:49

-Do these little lambs have any names yet?

-Yes.

-What are they?

0:04:490:04:53

-That one's Ferne and this one's Rory.

-No way. Really?

0:04:530:04:56

-Yeah.

-That's fantastic.

0:04:560:04:58

Hello, Ferne. BAA!

0:04:580:05:01

-Is that Rory shouting?

-Yes!

0:05:020:05:05

-Is that little one starting to grow horns?

-Yes.

-Will Ferne grow horns?

0:05:050:05:10

-Yes.

-It doesn't look like it. Where are your horns?

0:05:100:05:13

They're under there.

0:05:130:05:15

-They're underneath all her wool.

-Yeah.

0:05:150:05:18

I just love cuddling these little lambs.

0:05:190:05:23

Arthur, we have some work to do.

0:05:230:05:25

-What do we need to do next?

-Feed all the sheep.

0:05:250:05:28

-That's important. Shall we go?

-Yes.

-OK. Bye, lambs.

0:05:280:05:32

Right, Arthur, what do we need to feed them?

0:05:400:05:42

-Nuts.

-And these are special sheep nuts.

0:05:420:05:45

-Yes.

-OK. Come on, girls.

0:05:450:05:47

Lunchtime.

0:05:490:05:50

BAA! BAA! Oh, they're hungry.

0:05:530:05:57

Listen to them.

0:05:570:05:58

-Why are you feeding them nuts?

-Because their baby lambs get bigger.

0:06:000:06:05

So are all of these ewes pregnant?

0:06:050:06:07

-Yes.

-And why has Nanny sprayed spots on their back?

0:06:070:06:11

They're having two babies or one baby.

0:06:110:06:14

-So one spot means they're having one lamb and two spots, two lambs?

-Yes.

0:06:140:06:18

That's really clever. And this helps the lambs grow nice and strong?

0:06:180:06:22

Yes. That's enough.

0:06:220:06:24

-So, as well as nuts, what else do they eat?

-Hay.

0:06:240:06:28

-Shall we get that next?

-Yes.

0:06:280:06:30

The sheep eat lots of hay.

0:06:300:06:33

Here you go, girls.

0:06:350:06:37

-What do we need to do next?

-We need to give this one a bubble bath.

0:06:400:06:45

-What?

-Yeah!

-Why do we need to do that?

0:06:450:06:48

So she can get clean for the show.

0:06:480:06:51

OK. Normally, sheep aren't given baths

0:06:510:06:53

but sometimes if they're taking part in a show

0:06:530:06:56

they are specially washed to make them nice and clean.

0:06:560:06:59

-Shall we go find her?

-Yes.

-OK.

0:06:590:07:02

-Hiya.

-She's really dirty.

0:07:080:07:11

We have to get her all wet.

0:07:130:07:15

OK. You show me how it's done.

0:07:150:07:17

Good girl. Well done.

0:07:170:07:20

HE SQUEALS

0:07:200:07:22

Is she sharing her bath with you?

0:07:240:07:26

Yes!

0:07:260:07:27

Time for bubbles!

0:07:270:07:30

This special sheep soap smells amazing, doesn't it?

0:07:300:07:34

-Yes.

-She's going to be the best-smelling sheep. Aren't you?

0:07:340:07:39

All of this lovely soft wool, what's it called?

0:07:390:07:42

-Fleece.

-Yeah, that's right.

0:07:420:07:44

But she doesn't have much fleece, does she? Why's hers so short?

0:07:440:07:48

Cos we sheared it off.

0:07:480:07:51

-You sheared her?

-Yes.

-Sheep get sheared every year.

0:07:510:07:55

It helps to keep them cool in summer

0:07:550:07:57

and also makes the fleece nice and neat for shows.

0:07:570:08:00

It's just like getting your hair cut and sometimes the wool's used to

0:08:000:08:05

make clothes like woolly jumpers.

0:08:050:08:07

Oh, my goodness, look at all that muck coming off.

0:08:080:08:13

-Towel time.

-Let's get you nice and dry.

0:08:130:08:17

-She's looking a lot fluffier.

-Yeah.

0:08:170:08:21

-This looks like a superhero cape.

-Yeah!

0:08:210:08:24

She looks clean for the show.

0:08:270:08:30

Yeah, she does. But what do we need to do?

0:08:300:08:32

Wash our hands.

0:08:320:08:34

Twinkle and the sheep enjoyed their food, didn't they?

0:08:420:08:45

They ate it all up.

0:08:450:08:47

They did. If Twinkle could do absolutely anything, Arthur,

0:08:470:08:51

what would she do?

0:08:510:08:53

If Twinkle could do anything, she would jump over the fence

0:08:560:09:01

and head to the supermarket to buy a snack.

0:09:010:09:05

She would pay for the snack with wool

0:09:060:09:10

because she hasn't got any money.

0:09:100:09:13

She would sit on the swing and eat her snack with a big, happy smile.

0:09:130:09:19

We are all ready for the country show and I'm so excited.

0:09:280:09:33

Arthur, you look very smart.

0:09:330:09:35

-Doesn't he?

-Yeah!

-Are you excited?

-Yes. I hope we win a rosette.

0:09:350:09:41

-I hope you do, as well. Shall we go?

-Yes.

0:09:410:09:44

Come on. Let's win you a rosette.

0:09:440:09:47

This is the country show.

0:09:510:09:53

There's so many different animals to see.

0:09:540:09:58

Horses,

0:10:000:10:03

dogs,

0:10:030:10:06

piglets,

0:10:060:10:09

and lots of cows.

0:10:090:10:11

Arthur, these cows are fantastic. Look at the size of him.

0:10:130:10:17

-Wow!

-I've never seen one so big.

0:10:170:10:19

Welcome to the show.

0:10:190:10:21

Thank you. I love it.

0:10:210:10:23

There's so much to see, but we need to get ready for the competition.

0:10:250:10:29

-So, what do we need to do to get her ready?

-Brush her.

0:10:310:10:35

-Can I help with that?

-Yes.

-OK. Come on.

0:10:350:10:38

-Is this right?

-Yes.

0:10:430:10:45

We have to make her really fluffy.

0:10:490:10:52

-And what else do we need to do?

-We need to clean her nose.

0:10:520:10:56

-Wow! So the judges are even going to look at a sheep's nose?

-Yeah.

0:10:560:11:01

-Do you think she's ready?

-Yeah.

-Good luck.

0:11:040:11:07

Good luck, cute eyes. Come on, then.

0:11:070:11:10

Nanny's in the same lamb competition.

0:11:170:11:20

-Nanny!

-Hello, darling.

0:11:200:11:22

Good luck!

0:11:310:11:33

The judge is looking at the sheep to see if they're healthy and strong.

0:11:330:11:38

And Arthur's now showing the judge how well his sheep walks.

0:11:410:11:46

That was a brilliant walk.

0:11:460:11:48

Arthur did so well.

0:11:480:11:50

It's decision time for the judges.

0:11:530:11:56

Nanny won first place.

0:12:010:12:03

Well done!

0:12:100:12:12

Arthur got third place. I'm so happy.

0:12:120:12:15

Arthur, you did so well. I'm very, very proud of you. Well done.

0:12:190:12:25

I just loved meeting you and Twinkle and all of your sheep.

0:12:250:12:29

-Thank you very much.

-Thank you.

0:12:290:12:32

My Pet And Me!

0:12:420:12:44

-Hi, Rory.

-Hi, Ferne.

0:12:460:12:48

-Hiya, Hector.

-How was your day?

-Oh, it was fantastic.

0:12:480:12:51

I had such a great time with my friends.

0:12:510:12:53

-It was really fun.

-Oh, great. As you can see,

0:12:530:12:56

I've been catching up on cuddle time with Hector.

0:12:560:12:59

I can see - he's loving it! Pets are great but don't touch an animal

0:12:590:13:03

unless the owner says it's OK.

0:13:030:13:05

Two pets you CAN play with are ours.

0:13:050:13:07

Go to the CBeebies website - play the My Pet And Me game.

0:13:070:13:11

What a fantastic time we've had. We just love meeting you and your pets.

0:13:110:13:15

# Today we met

0:13:180:13:20

# A lovely pet

0:13:210:13:24

# We see how much you care for them

0:13:240:13:27

# Thank you so much for sharing them

0:13:270:13:30

# Time for us to

0:13:300:13:33

# Just remind you

0:13:330:13:36

# After you've played with your pet

0:13:360:13:39

# Wash your hands, don't forget

0:13:390:13:42

# It doesn't matter what pet you've got

0:13:420:13:45

# You might have one, you might not

0:13:450:13:48

# It's still fun finding out

0:13:480:13:51

# What having a pet is all about

0:13:510:13:54

# My pet, my pet and me

0:13:540:13:57

# My pet, my pet and me

0:13:570:14:00

# My pet, my pet and me

0:14:000:14:02

# Come back and see my pet and me. #

0:14:020:14:05

-ALL:

-Bye!

0:14:050:14:09
