That, for me, was the best part of that show. You could tell he was truly out of his element at certain moments (like when the lambs were being born and not all were making it, which is typical but morbid). It was a nice change of pace from his usual antics where you laugh at an obviously scripted bit. You could also see the reality of the farming business hitting him with every update from his guys, and he just gained more and more respect for them.

The bit where he took those three injured sheep for slaughter, and wanted to say a last goodbye only to find out they'd already been taken off and killed was such an unguarded moment. He was genuinely upset and unbalanced by it.

Of course, he later bounces back with the joke that he turned them into shepherd's pie, but that's just the Clarkson formula - shrug things off with a laugh and some boorish clowning.

The cut from him being genuinely sad at the abattoir to enjoying his lamb pie was absolutely hilarious
