Second chances are what make the world go round. If we never gave someone the benefit of the doubt, or another opportunity, where would we be? And that’s all this little lamb needed: a second chance. Smokey the lamb was abandoned just hours after he was born, when a farmer found the little sheep all alone in the freezing cold. He took him in.
The next thing Smokey knew, he was living it up in New York City with his foster parents. Check out the inspiring story of this little lamb below.
Here’s Smokey, three weeks after his harrowing experience.
The farmer who found him occasionally finds other baby lambs in similar circumstances, and makes the effort to ensure they find good homes.
So, at only four days old, Smokey was given to his new foster parents.
Though the big city was certainly new for Smokey, it quickly became his home.
Smokey even began making appearances at the restaurant that Hall manages. He made fast friends with the regulars.
Though he can’t stay with them forever, Smokey’s foster parents want to make the best of the time they have.
At least by then he’ll have plenty of stories to tell his new lamb besties! If you’re in the area and spot a little lamb, don’t worry – your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you.
