Ok...my grandfather has this cow which is rather old...not even sure when she was born - she has always stayed well away from the other cattle and when others come near she walks away with ears back - well yesterday I noticed that she walked clean into a barbed wire fence...then 5 mintues later did the exact same thing - I looked at her eyes today but didn't see any clouding at all...so what do you think? I got some pics just in case mybe I missed something...she is old so I'm sure we will be selling her pretty soon...

Is she touchable? How easy would it be to get her in the chute? A quick swat toward each eye should tell you if she's blind in either of them.

maybe she needs corrective lenses.. can't see the thin wire... definite possibility, i don't see anything physically wrong with her eyes

using something as big as your hand may she may still see, it might small stuff she can't see

She would put up a challenge getting her into the chute/pen...but if we do we will just sell her b/c she is old and doesn't go in the pen anyway...
