        A perfectly healthy and cute lamb has been born with five legs at a farm in Northumberland.

        The staff at Whitehouse Farm Centre in Morpeth named him... Quinto smiley



        The additional front limb is fully formed and does not appear to be causing the animal any problems. However, a vet is due to assess Quinto in the next day or so and decide whether or not to amputate her extra leg.

        Ms Hogarty, who has run the farm's visitor centre for 16 years, said: "We've never come across anything like this before and neither has anyone we've spoken to. She's doing absolutely fine at the moment and does not appear to have suffered any adverse effects from being born with an extra leg. It looks like it's fully formed, although it's a bit limp in the middle of her lower body. As she was being born we just thought it was one of the front legs in an awkward position. She and her two sisters are a very healthy weight. Having five legs isn't stopping her running about even though it's about the same size as the other legs."

        Sam Prescott, director of Robson and Prescott Veterinary Centre in Morpeth, said: "It is certainly rare but we will see mutations of different sorts and always have done. We'll see lambs born with two heads and Siamese twins, there can be all sorts of deformities that make them nonviable."

        Interesting. It looks to be shorter so he can't use it? Wonder how the lamb could walk with 5 legs.

        Here is a video of quinto the lamb - HERE.  The leg is totally floppy and he seems to be walking ok with it.  Cute lamb.

        Thanks for the video Blue, the lamb looks very cute and doesn't seem bothered by the extra leg.

        Cute lamb. It's great that it doesn't have any problems with the extra leg.
