We've messed with mother nature and now it's time for her to mess with us....living in farm country i've seen a lot of wierd stuff in the past 2 years that I thought I would never see, 2 headed snakes, turtles,

True Kansas twister!! Mother nature is just givin it all back..... U'll never guess what I saw, a two headed calf today. I was checking the top paddock fences on Rod (Old QH) and I saw this lump of fur I went over and far enough it was a two headed calf. It was still alive - just but its head was two heavy for it so when it was walking-stumbling it was dragging its head along. I had my pocket knife so I had to slite its throat- poor thing

I had a friend that had a foal like that but it was a still born so they obviously(spelling) didn't have to go through surgery. Good luck and let us know how it goes

YES it was my cow :roll: I'm not that cyco We live on a Cattle Property (me, Alex (my older bro) and dad) and we also bred QH and ASH.
Its so cruel, some things mother nature does to us- but in some ways we brought it on our selves :roll:
