Her mom was one of my donor cows. She got toxic mastitis when Yippee (this cow) was 5 days old. Vet saved her life, but her system had shut down for too long, and she started loosing her extremities. Ears, tail, bulbous part of her nose. Then she started to get lame. Calf was 4 months old. Vet said it had been plenty of time to clear the drugs out of her system, so cut my loss, he "assumed" she was going to lose her feet - I shipped her. I had been supplementing the calf with a bottle for the first 2 months, and we ended up showing Yippee. Last animal Ken showed - she won her division at KILE and we won Premier Breeder, Ken's most prized goal. Took him to the hospital next day.
Shoot - didn't mean to go there. Should erase it, but no.
Well, aren't I a downer. Good way to end this post. Good night.
