When Babe is won by Farmer Hogget at the Village Fair, an extraordinary friendship begins - one that will change the whole farm. Through a variety of farmyard friends and his new ‘mother’ the old dog Fly, Babe quickly learns the herding instinct and delights all, politely winning over the most suspicious of sheep.
