Eight-month-old Fionn Agnew is already showing a keen interest in operations on Petticrew Farm at Cairncastle.

He popped on a cap and high-visibility vest this week to help his granda and to meet one of the newest arrivals, a one-day-old lamb.

Fionn also enjoyed the chance to sit behind the wheel of a tractor at the farm, which has been the Petticrew family’s for several generations.
Proud mum Steph, who kindly shared the photos of Fionn, joked: “Massey Ferguson driver in training and he loves the sheep and the cows.”

Fionn takes a seat behind the wheel.
