It looks like one of my heifers calf's tail got stepped on and came off about 8 or so inches down from her hip. Has anybody ever had any that had any lasting problems from having a short tail or been docked at the sale barn hard from it? If she's good enough I'll keep her as a replacement and just keep her treated heavy for flies during the warms months. It doesn't have any chew marks on it like a dog or coyote got after her it almost looks like it was banded and fell off which makes me think it got stepped on. Doesn't seem to faze her any and the cold snap lately is keeping the flies down.
