Left her until today after work got a halter on her and tied her to a tree, got her to lie down after fighting with her for ten minutes. The hoof looked good no foot rot or anything. The bull is in the same boat the cow is in now doesn’t put any weight on his foot they are not moving far at all. I will load them up in morning and bring them back home and get the vet out to see what is going on. Has anyone had trouble with cattle bruising or hurting their feet from acorns? This is my first year at this pasture it is about 30 acres but there is probably 20 oak trees and I see the acorns are just starting to fall off the trees. Just strange that two have come up lame at the same time with what looks like the same thing.
