Six-week-old Cinders might have mysophobia, a fear of dirt.

Owner and sausage farmer Andrew Keeble from Thirsk, North Yorks, has equipped her with wellington boots. “Lo and behold they fitted her like a glove,” Mr Keeble tells the BBC.

“She’s scared of mud, but her brothers and sisters are quite happy in it. We’ve never come across this before. They are born really to go and explore, but she never really liked going in the mud.”

And now she’s famous she won’t be slaughtered. Indeed, she’s now the mascot for Mr Keeble’s campaign to raise money for the Farm Crisis Network, which supports struggling farmers.
