Well Im back with a little more info regarding the cattle that I feared would starve. Seven cattle wandered back into the area that is barron so the (owners?/caretakers?) of the cattle came out and tried to herd them back onto the 40 acre parcel. Well they ended up herding a yearling into the creek. I watched in disbelief as 4 people tried to pull the cow out of the creek by hand!!! (while the horses were standing close by). They took off the bridle and whipped the cow trying to make him get up out of the creek and it couldnt do it. I yelled at them and asked if they needed a rope...they said yes...I gave them two huge tow straps to pull the cow out. The man attached the tow strap to the saddle and tried to pull on the cow with the nose of the horse facing away from the cow...so you know what happened next right?....the saddle slid down around the flank of the horse, the horse reared, bucked, kicked, fell down, ANNNND fell into the same creek. They all stood around not knowing what to do...the horse was able to get himself out but the cow (already weakened from previous starvation) is STILL in the creek...its been over an hour now...its SUNDAY...and everyone just left ...no four wheelers...no tractor...no nothing...it appears they are leaving the cow there to freeze... Im not kidding...I know quite a few people on this board thinks Im "fishy" but this time I took pictures...I zoomed my digital as close as I could but you can see the black cow stuck in the creek.
