Princeville, IL (HOI) - Here's a local Valentine's Day treat, a new addition to a local barn proves to extra special. Todd Reuber found a surprise among his flock of sheep on Tuesday when a newborn lamb had a white mark on it's side in the shape of a heart.

With the timing just days before Valentine's Day, they call him cupid.

The Reuber's have been barring sheep for the past three years and this is the first one to be born multicolored.

Despite sheep being able to have more than one baby at a time, Cupid is an only child.

"We knew he was gonna be born around this time…somewhere around valentines week…but little did we ever think that he would be born with a white imprint of a heart," said Reuber.
