I've heard of plenty of cows calving right by the water and lots of calves lost... never a canadian cow though... Was it M5 or Sky that got really lucky not long ago?TexasBred":2kixfnf3 said:
Yep...brimmers too if they're smart :lol:M-5":1fyvktl4 said:yes , I had one calve in the edge of the pond last year. but In the heat of the summer and when the ponds are full every one of mine red black white and yeller will cool off.
As much as they hang out in the ponds & the lake, I'm fortunate none of my girls have ever calved near (or in!) the water.TexasBred":3dj4lbek said:

Red cows and white cows here graze all day long, unless they're full and laying down chewing cud.
