Little Surprise

J was coming up through the field after having moved a bull and ran across this little surprise. 
 This nanny had aborted back in February.  We sold the billy goat February 24th.  If she got bred on the day we sold him she shouldn't kid until July 24th.  This was on July 18th.  The little thing was too weak to stand.
 So J caught the nanny and I held up the baby.  It nursed great.  But it was too hot to leave out in the sun all day.
The cattle trailer was handy so J put the pair in there for the the day.  By the afternoon the little thing was up and moving around on its own.  J has since hauled the pair to the barn but I haven't had a chance to check in on them yet.  Had she decided to kid somewhere other than in front of the gate we might never have known anything about it.
