But you obviously love and respect yer cows (like in India no?) so maybe they just can't see the love and compassion you have for your lovely cows. Someday they will. After seeing how well you love your cows that love has to spill over on them. Knit that baby cow up a nice blankie. Feel better soon.

I am so sorry to hear about your cow and her little calf left behind. I hope you find him soon and that he is okay. I know he isn't, but maybe you will help fill the hole in his little heart. I know for certain that you will try. Let us know about him okay? I will worry until I know he is safe. How old is he? samm who has animals around her always and knows how much they are loved and part of your life. Hugs for you with my concern and condolences.

I'm sorry for your loss--I hate blue days. I don't quite know what to do when I'm having a blue I'd not be a good one to give advice. I hope things get better for you.

Hands down, you guys are the very best. Thank you from the bottom of my

The orphan is now on a bottle AND I think I may have to put a ski mask on him to hide his identity. He is dashing up to other cows, taking a quick drink and then dashing away before she understands it's not her calf nursing. The last sick calf is now up and fussing about being pinned up away from mom. Life is better.

Cattle make wonderful pets, mine are so gentle I worry about them during hunting season. Around here most of the hunters are fantastic outdoors people and are a good source of info for lots of agencies, the exceptions are the ones that load up the campers with fence cutters, bourbon, beer, guns and ammo. They are the reason I use temporary electric fencing and bring everyone close to home until the season is over. AND the reason all my grandchildren have day-glow orange vest as mandatory clothing in the fall.

Thanks again and hugs back to all of you,
