They might look like your average spring lambs, but these incredible creatures are set to reinvent British farming – because they can shear themselves.

The remarkable self-shearing sheep have been bred to shed their winter coats naturally – reversing 7,000 years of farming tradition.

The new breed, called Exlana, is being developed by farmers in South West England to lose their woolly coats automatically when the weather warms up.

Reminds me of the joke about the Koreans developing a self-basing dog.

If only we could develop self-revoking politicians.
