Update On Josie, Little Blind Calf
Josie isn't so little though, she is growing like a weed since she learned to graze like a good cow should. Day before yesterday John didn't see her or her Mama number 12 so yesterday we set out to look for them. Down the lane toward the back forty we heard a mooing in the brush but didn't see anything so on the way back we stopped to look. Number 12 heard the truck and came out looking for her cubes (kinda like cow candy, but not really) then I spotted Josie. She had gotten herself on the other side of the dry creek bed and didn't know how to get back. I'm sure it's hard when the ground slants down and you can't see where you are stepping. John tried to help her but that confused her so we just let her be to let her Mama figure out how to get her across. That's how she got over there in the first place. Number 12 has turned out to be such a good Mama. Josie runs right along side of her almost touching her as they run with the herd. John just walked in and said all is well, Josie and number 12 are on the east property with the herd. Mama figured out a way to get her across the dry creek bed.
