    I bought a doe (Lamb Chop) awhile ago, in milk. Her kids were pulled and bottle fed right after she kidded. She is a fantastic milker, both behavior and amount. So when I bought Finnigan and Love Bug who were on bottles, Finn loved his bottle but Love Bug never "loved" her bottle. So I got an :idea: and let her nurse on one side of Lambie when I milked her, and she took RIGHT to it. It had been a week I think and this morning when I fed, Love Bug did not want her grain, which I didn't think much of as she has Cocci right now and doesn't feel great. So after I fed I got Lambie up onto the milkstand and put Love Bug up there and Lambie had NO milk! So I'm like Uh OH!! Is Lambie sick?!?? Then wham. It hit me, Lambie has ADOPTED Love Bug, and lets her nurse. I saw lambie nuzzle her and she just stood there letting her nurse (several times).

    I LOVE my Lambie :love:
