Adorable footage captures the moment a two-year-old giggles her way through a canter with Hugo, a sheep, around a field on her family’s farm.
Verity Seignot-Griffiths, who lives in Bordon, East Hampshire, leads the obedient brown and white sheep, called Hugo, around a field by rope.
The toddler, who’s wearing a floral dress, giggles in delight as she runs around with the sheep in tow.
Verity Seignot-Griffiths, who lives on a farm in Bordon, East Hampshire, competently leads Hugo straight towards a red pole on the ground which he then leaps over
At one point she loses grip on her rope and Hugo runs over to a fence, while a family dog runs about in the foreground.
Not put off, confident young farmer Verity goes over and collects Hugo, picking up his rope and leading him once again.
Verity keeps glancing back to check he is following and Hugo bleats loudly as he runs along.
She then heads in a straight line and competently leads Hugo straight towards a red pole on the ground.

Cheerful Verity says: ‘Jump!’ and Hugo obliges.
The adorable toddler can’t stop laughing and the duo continue to run with Verity tumbling over next to Hugo.
The footage was shot on May 26 by Verity’s mother, Caroline Seignot-Griffiths, who can be heard saying: ‘Upsy daisy,’ as Verity falls over.
Mum Caroline works at Pony Pals, which provides therapy horses and ponies for nurseries, residential homes and hospices.
The video was uploaded to two-year-old Verity’s Facebook page, ‘Verity and the Pony Pals.’

‘The most dangerous part of sheep show-jumping is the giggles,’ the post beside the video said.
During the coronavirus crisis Verity has her own sponsored challenge which involves her learning to ride a bike, with stabilisers, and cycling with a chicken, a guinea pig and a pony!
Verity is regularly pictured with animals on the farm and has also been filmed leading a miniature pony called Super Noodles over jumping poles when she was just 17 months old.
