Cow Trouble – Wordless Wednesday

Loony Acres Miss Moo 032914

Yes, we’ve been having a bit of cow trouble. Some might thing our cow “honeymoon” is over but that’s not really the case. Though we have the following cow trouble, we still adore Miss Moo (a.k.a. Eclipse).

Cow Trouble

Head stuck in a gate/stall. Very serious but by the time the vet got here she was perfectly fine. Figures, right?

Mites or else she’s rubbing the hair off her neck when she puts her head through her gate.

Getting out of her stall.

Getting into cat food….eeeewww! Not exactly what I want to eat via her milk. :0

Getting out of her pasture through the little bungie gate. It’s electrified but she was getting out. We think it was being ground out somehow. She’s been good this week but we will be shoring up that gate to prevent her from getting out anymore.

She lost another calf two weeks ago. :(

Yet we love her.

  1. Marcie W. says:

    This may be a dumb question, but are there cows that are prone to miscarriages like some humans? Poor thing

  2. Liz Mays says:

    Goodness she is a little bit of a mischief maker, isn’t she?

  3. Marcie, yes, I think so, but we are still learning. Though miscarriage wasn’t Miss Moo’s history before she came to us. That’s why I am thinking it might be the moldy hay. We’ll find out because we got rid of the moldy hay so we’ll see if the next AI takes. Miss Moo had a rough go of it at a couple of homes before us but she’s had two calves in the past so she is capable of being successfully bred and carrying to term.

  4. Aww sorry for the loss. Hopefully she starts behaving for you

  13. Kelsey Apley says:

    Glad she got her head out okay and nothing serious!!! Awww I am sorry to hear she lost another calf :-(.

  14. Kathleen B says:

    A lot of this sounds like the same troubles my mom is having with her miniature horses. They are constantly getting out and sneaking into stuff.

  15. Colleen says:

    Sounds like a child rebelling LOL

  16. Poor thing. Maybe she’s not used to her surroundings.

  17. Shell Feis says:

    Aww sorry about the calf, that must be hard for everyone. She’s such a beauty though, even if she causes a much of mischief!

  18. She is a rascal for sure!
