Family’s big baby Nick Boing Palmer weighs 22 stone!




Family’s pet 
22-stone sheep  


A Cardiff family have an unusual pet –

a 22-stone sheep who loves eating biscuits

and curling up on the couch to watch TV.

Former coach driver David Palmer

rescued the sheep, which he calls

Nick Boing, three years ago,

when he was just a newborn,

reports the Daily Mail.



The 53-year-old found the sick lamb in long grass on a trip to a nature reserve with his partner Caroline Clements, 54, and their 13-year-old son Nathan.

“There were no other sheep about so we picked him up,”

he said.

“I didn’t know anything about sheep so I took him to the nearest farm and left my name,

but nobody contacted me and he came with us.

“Caroline had a baby bottle left from when Nathan was little so we fed him some milk and within an hour he was running around.



The family twice tried leaving Nick with farmers,

but he refused to go near other sheep and would not settle.

Now he has his own purpose-

built bungalow, complete with a carpet and windows,

in the family’s back garden.

But the 22-stone ram prefers to spend his

evenings watching television in the living room,

so he head butts the cushions out of the way

and settles down on the sofa.

Nick’s nightly TV sessions usually end

around 11pm, when he is given a swede

or an apple and is ushered outside to sleep.

“He’s part of the family,”

said Mr Palmer.

“He’s more intelligent than your average

sheep that’s stuck in a field.

He’s in the house and in the car and

meeting people. He’s good company

and he knows what’s what.”
