How funny is that! =)
I've had that happen a couple of times, where a calf would nurse his own mother and another as well. Years ago I remember seeing our neighbor's herd bull sneaking up behind cows whose calves were nursing, and helping himself to milk by nursing from behind them. Hilarious, since he was bigger than all the cows in the herd.
Isn’t that neat? The animal kingdom is amazing in how it adapts when it comes to mothering. I have had dogs adopt baby piglets (the negative on that is the pigs think their dogs) and cats adopt another cat’s whole litter.
I have a weaned kitten feeding from my only unneutered bitch. Piri had her litter 12th October 2008 & has had the canine contraceptive injection every 6 months since. The kitten (or kip as we re categorized her) had to suckle well for ages before she brought the milk back in... Kip has been suckling for months now ~ she started before the pups were a year & is still going.
