    The outdoor babies are starting to get big and starting to push their way into the grain tray in the morning...except one. The grain tray is round and as soon as I dump the sweet feed it's a mob scene. While everyone is distracted eating, one of the baby boys just walks around back and goes from nanny to nanny getting a pull on the milk spigots.

    When I first noticed it was when he was nursing on a nanny that wasn't his mommy. So I stopped to watch for a minute and when one nanny shakes him off, he just goes to the next one, all the way around the circle.

    Pretty darn clever for livestock.
