Seeing Double

Apparently today was twinning day.
Two sets of goat twins were born late this morning.
The one from yesterday is still doing fine. Sometimes Bea goes over to it and nudges him with her nose. So far the dogs have not been to rough on the baby goats but these two nanny goats today have been pretty rough on the dogs.
J had to work at the market today so it was up to me to check the cattle. I found a bull calf that had not been cleaned off wandering by himself and a new heifer calf clean and dry being hovered over by the cow. I tried to get the cow to stand still for the bull calf to nurse but she wouldn't have any part of it. I ended up having to put him in the front floor board of the truck to bring him to the house. I guess we have a bottle calf for the time being.

Adorable kids. Will you keep the bottle baby and raise it?

We will use him to graft onto another cow if we lose a calf, otherwise, we'll raise him as a bottle calf.
