1-1/2 year old hereford heifer 4days ago stopped eating no temp. good color no discharge from nose or vulva vet check showed about three months along in preg.
she looks fine, you would not know anything is wrong.
The other cows and heifers are pushing her out, they are being nasty they push her hard in the gut area. of course we separated her now.
and for some reason she stands with her front legs in the water she never did that before this.can not find anything conclusive any suggustions would help. thank you

It seems strange she would want to keep her front legs in water. Unless maybe she has foundered and by standing in water it cools the fever in her feet down.

I agree. Never had a foundered cow, but have had foundered horses- and they will stand in the water all day. Sounds like a founder or infection in the feet.
