There he is getting a good scrub from momma. I still like him. The top one looks like He-Man, he's gonna be a muscular dude. Enjoyed seeing all your pics, been wanting to take some and post too but just ain't done it. Fall has been so late arriving here, finally got a little rain so I got some Ryegrass spread although a month later than I wanted. Flies are bad for it being October here. Wouldn't mind having a frost to some extent.

Oh yeah. They are the toughest to get pictures of. But I have noticed a problem. One has an umbilical hernia. I need to get her in and tie that off.

That was great photography, catching that tongue out!!! Looks good. We are about peak color right now. Have had numerous frosts - as low as 26F, but our days (right now) are getting up to 70F. Beautiful!!

Here is a picture from today. The cow is doing a fantastic job and the bond is as strong as a log chain. So far, they are not pulling her down.

I concur, there is not much weight between the belly and the ground.

How are you going to tie it off?
What is the size of the opening of the umbilical ring?
Have seen smaller hernias heal spontaneously...hopefully this is the case. Be careful that it is not infected or that intestines are not strangulated ;-)
