Crooked Foot


Looking at the picture the hoof on the right is completely turned but you can't tell as there is a clump of dirt in the way thanks to my good photo expertise. John bought her at the local cattle auction not knowing her hoof was as bad as it is. I don't think she knows she is different from her peers and I don't think she feels sorry for herself. She can keep up with the other cattle and gives birth to good calves and takes care of them. We found this morning that she has a spanking brand new calf. Probably her smallest yet because John left her older calf with her too long and it was draining her of milk and energy. Crooked Foot has been a good addition to the herd and she is as happy as a cow can be.

It does look spayed pretty much. Wish something could be done for her. Helen

I've never seen one like that but it doesn't seem like it bothers her too much. Amen to the new header picture, it's beautiful.

At least she turned out to be a good one even with the bad foot.

I'm glad she doesn't know she's a little different. Nothing like a happy cow :-)

Have a great weekend Paula!

That cow seems to be one happy cow. My sister had a crooked foot and she never let that stand in her way. Love the little cartoon on the side.

You and John are just the best cattle-tenders. Love that Crooked Foot is as happy as the rest of the herd and has given birth to happy calves.

What a gorgeous cemetery. Are those Indian Paintbrush? Gorgeous

Hey Ms. Paula. Thanks for the comment. Yes, I remember Janie. I actually e-mailed her several months ago and she was doing ok. She just doesn't blog anymore as far as I know.
