is it healthy for them to be that skinny though? Like good for the cow and baby? I don't raise cattle. Haha. But I have been to dairy farms (holstein) and they werent that skinny. Is it a jersey cow thing?

my best friend is my arabian. People always tell me that he's the calmest horse they've ever seen. i tell them he's an arabian. and they are surprised :)

The cow is fine - she is a little thin, but I have a lot of friends the run dairies - and their cows are always skinny looking to me. We raised beef cattle though, and liked them to be fluffy.

We bought a jersey cow from a dairy friend. She was skinny when we got her, but didn't stay that way. Her milk production dropped off some, and the dairyman said it was because we were feeding her like a beef cow, and not like a dairy cow. We didn't care - we got more than enough milk anyway.

She is not too bad.
She can probably stand up, our cows always had difficulties with that by this point beef cows as well, and also very, very fluffy.

that is so crazy. I just can't stand for an animal to be underweight, but I guess if it is normal for them it is ok. I guess they sell the milk so they want as much as possible. I don't like organic straight from the cow milk. Tastes funky :p. I like beef cattle. I heard theyre smarter. And they make nice burgers haha. I have always wanted a brahma cow. Just for a pet. I think theyre cute. :)

Not really haha, my dog likes biting the stream and sticking her face in it. If her eyes are still in her head the horse should be fine. Can't be pleasant though.

I don't know about how pleasant is it, but we had a horse that loved going to the car wash. I never used the soap on him, nor did I use full pressure up close, but he would stretch out and roll his back around like "get me here, mommy, it itches right here!" He was white, and it was the only way to get him clean, and keep him clean, before a parade. We'd stop at the car wash on the way, and let him air dry in the trailer.
