I was out making my feeding rounds earlier today and I came up on a cow with all four legs sticking up in the air. I decided before I got to her that she was dead but that wasn't the case. She laid down on flat ground and somehow got on her back and couldn't get up. I did my due duty and got her flipped over and eventually standing. My thank you, a nice swift kick in the back of the foot. My foot is now swelled and I am having a hard time putting weight on it. Someday's you just want to kill em'.

Hope the value of the cow offsets any potential doctor bills. :wink: At least you saved her. We lost a cow from the same problem a few days ago,
as she was calving. One cow and one calf instantly down the drain. :(

I'm doing my best to walk it off. She wasn't calving just appeared to get all out of kilter. I explained my feelings in french as she walked off.

Well, you can eat her, someday to get even!

I like to keep mine thin enough so I never have to worry about that problem. :wink:
