This a sweet and heartwarming Christmas special that I now love after watching online. Based on a children's book I had never heard or read, the story is about an orphaned lamb named Joshua who was born with a crippled leg. The poor little lamb was excluded (and teased) from the rest of the flock because of this; except Laura Lamb. One day, the flock leaves for the pasture for the day, and poor Joshua must stay behind as Samuel the shepherd had saved him from a lion when he tries to get the pasture by night, so he can be first. As he and his only friend, Abigail the cow (voiced by the wonderful Jodi Benson), they were awakened by the sounds of special guests arriving at the stable. I'm afraid that's all I could tell you. See for yourself how it ends.
All in all, I love every bit of this Christmas story, and I really love Jodi's rendition of "Away in a Manger," one of my favorite Christmas songs.
