A lamb's unusual markings saved his life - because his half-black face helped a Welsh farmer spot him in his snow-covered fields.

The four-week-old Texel cross ram has been named Battenberg by the farmer's young sons, who say his stripey face reminds them of the cake.

His front right leg and back left legs are black - while the other two are white.

Cute ram - lousy paint job!

It really does remind me of the cake. It's a cute ram but it makes me want chocolate.
