Arthur Jones (2) with his Nan Nicky Jesse, Twinkle and the cup they won at The Dorset County Show for child that showed the most endeavour. <br />
<br />
Little Arthur Jones is Britain's youngest shepherd - at just two and a half years old.<br />
<br />
He's not even old enough to go to school but Arthur already looks after his own flock of sheep which he herds himself on a mini quad bike.<br />
<br />
The inspirational toddler has formed a special bond with Twinkle, a lamb which like himself was born prematurely.<br />
<br />
He helped nurse Twinkle back to health, and the pair now are so inseparable that Twinkle comes running when she hears Arthur's voice.<br />
<br />
Arthur suffers from cerebral palsy but has not let the condition come between him and his animals, which he tends to daily at his grandmother's farm.
