So I walked down to the pen earlier than usual this morning to milk my girl as we had a day trip planned, and I noticed that as she lay there she was suckling from her own teat. I was wondering if this was a common occurrence, and especially if it could be harmful to her? I am not prepared to dry her off as she has only been in milk for about 5 months. I am almost inclined to simply ignore the behavior as she produces a ton and has had a hard time maintaining her weight. I figure she might as well benefit from all that production! :laugh: However if it is considered a "no-no" as far as her health is concerned I'd like to know. Thanks!
