Stuart, 23, runs Bleathgill Farm with his father Wilf and as heavy snow continues to fall, extra effort is needed to look after and protect their Swaledale sheep from the cold. Across the UK, farmers are battling to save livestock after heavy snow and freezing temperatures has left thousands of sheep and cattle stuck in the fields with no access to food and fresh water.
