    Nothing like seeing something like that first-hand to make sure he remembers your advice for ever more too.

    So I had an interesting experience today. I was riding through a pen of calves looking for aq sick one and I had just spotted one that needed some nylon supplement when out of the corner of my eye a calf fell over stiff legged and started posturing and kicking its legs. It freaked my horse right out. I couldn't even ride up to it. I finally got off and went to get a closer look. It would stretch its legs out and then curl them back in. I gave it a good dose of LA 200 because I didn't have anything else. I figured that the calf would be dead pretty soon. About 3 hours later I came back around and he was up a walking around. He didn't look real good but he didn't look dead either. Then as I watched he stiffened up and tipped over again with the same thing as before. I couldn't do more than I had already done so I left again. Later as I was on my way home the kid that's been helping me called me on the phone and said the calf was up and moving around again. I'm almost hoping the calf dies so that we can get a necropsy and find out what's wrong with it.

    Hmm, interesting. We once had a dog start doing that after he was kicked in the head....

    Kevin it's always good to hear your stories, your living the life! Did you get affected with any of the windstorm last week? I personally cut up 22 trees in my neighborhood alone and assisted with 6 more. The fallen trees with all of the other debris made for quite a mess. We were without power for 4 days and didn't get internet back until yesterday.

    I wonder if that calf has some sort of nutrional imbalance? I have heard of cattle with a high sulfate intake having similar symptoms. But I havent seen it myself. I am very curious.

    The windstorm missed us.

    Apparently the calf is doing better today. I didn't see it because I had to help the nieghbor get some cattle gathered up after they had ran out of water and gotten out.
