Loss is inevitable when you’re raising livestock, but this farmer still wanted to comfort his beloved sheep while she grieved her lamb. A sheep breeder on TikTok shared the most wholesome video of their father looking after one of these animals after she lost her baby. He sat with her, petted her, and even talked her through the grief! This devoted farmer was almost as broken up about the sheep’s loss as she was.

The following week, another pregnant sheep had her baby. Not forgetting what the grieving mama had been through, the farmer went back to comfort the poor sheep again. What a kind and caring animal lover!

Many commenters were moved by the way that the sweet farmer’s comforted the sheep after the sad event.

“Treasure this man and his beautiful soul and big heart,” wrote one user.

“What a lovely man,” another person said. “The way someone treats an animal says a lot.”
