Yesterday morning started not very well. One of our older very pregnant cow was in the calving pen and it looked like she was ready to give birth but I notice that she hadn't eaten her grain and she even refused to drink her water. I thought that she was in labor and that once she gave birth she would get interested in eating. Then she laid down and when she tried to get up she was too weak to get up.
My son called the vet and he came and treated her and then tried to pull the dead heifer calf out. It was turned and he worked about two and a half hours to pull the calf out. It was 10:30pm last night when I got home from the barn. It looked like she was getting her strength back but this morning when I walked in the barn, the first thing I saw was the cow on her side and she was dead.
Today I made some lemon meringue pies to cheer me up and the next cheer me up I got was that my daughter send me some photos of my grandson smiling and I thought that I would share them with you.
Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment. JB
