Heifer Update and Autumn

Dandelion Seedhead www.thinkingcowgirl.wordpress.comThis is an update on the heifer pregnancy panic story which you can read about here if you are so inclined.

Well, I phoned the owners and they didn’t say one way or another but said it was pretty unlikely because of her age. He just said keep an eye on her and if you see some calf feet coming out call the vet straight away As you can imagine this didn’t inspire me with confidence. He did say he would replace her if it was the case as she would be a devalued animal. I wonder if I’m going to talk like this when I start selling…

A more reassuring comment came from, a commenter on the blog….one or two of our heifers have (accidentally) gotten in calf at an earlier age than one year. Technically, it’s possible, but for her to be far enough along to show it… probably not.

Thank you from one cowgirl to another.

Autumn is snapping at our summer heels….

    • Hello, yes it is a snail, I think they are the commonest sort around us but can’t remember the name.
