When visiting the Badlands NP in summer, I always enjoy finding the Bighorn Sheep, particularly the young lambs. At this time of the year, the ewes are trying to wean the lambs from nursing … but the youngs ones find it is easier to nurse than graze!
When the ewes won’t allow nursing, the lambs will often resort to other antics, in this case, nuzzling up to mom first:
But that typically doesn’t work, either!
