Throwback to this time last year when one Kiwi toddler went viral for his adorable attempt at rounding up sheep.

Known on TikTok as Farmerfreddie5, wee Freddie captured the hearts of followers after his parents shared footage of him trying his hand at wrangling the woolly livestock.

The video - which has received more than 200,000 views - shows the young boy rounding up two lambs in a pen before managing to grab one of them and shouting "I got one!" to his parents.

He then turns around proudly to check if his fellow farmers could see his successful attempt.

A second lamb – who escaped the gentle gasp of the enthusiastic boy – watched on before letting out a "baa," to which Freddie quietly baa-ed back.

Another video shows a fearless Freddie telling his mum he is going to "chase sheep" before he jumps into a holding pen and with his hands on his hips, he directs the sheep into another pen.

He then confidently tells his mum, "Mummy I need to shear one".

Too cute!
