Episode Summary

Have You Any Wool?
Lassie is out feeding her forest friends,when she comes upon a black lamb. The little creature was caught in a snare and being stalked by a coyote. Lassie chases away the coyote and chews the snare rope free. She is about to leave when the pathetically bleating lamb makes her realize it has no home. First she finds a flock of white sheep and the lamb runs up and eagerly nurses on a ewe. But the ewe doesn't recognize the black lamb as hers and savagely drives it away. Next they find a cow, and the lamb tries to nurse on her. But she kicks it away. By now the little fellow is so weak from hunger that Lassie wants to leave it while she reconnoiters, but a hawk appears, so first she must hide the lamb in some brush. To her relief, ahead she finds a flock of black sheep, but returns to find the hawk attacking the lamb, who has broken cover, and must fight the bird off. To Lassie's relief, the black sheep accept the black lamb. But a white lamb is loose in the flock of black ones, being rejected as well, and Lassie takes on its charge. She's on firmer ground now, recalling where she saw a flock of white sheep, and sure enough, the white lamb is accepted there. Having had a busy day, Lassie heads off in relief. Then she hears a lamb's bleat. She stares. Here is another stray lamb trotting toward her--this one white with black spots! She gives a howl of despair and tries to run off, but a pathetic bleat makes her pause in her tracks. She stops as the spotted lamb catches up with her, licks it in resignation, and the two of them trot off together as the episode ends.moreless
