...Stupid Morning, Stupid Cows, Stupid Stupid...
 
Okay, I get up at 6:30am this morning to start getting ready for basketball practice which is at 7:30am. At around 7:00am my grandma calls and asks for my mom, sounding very urgent. Guess what I find out? :shock:

Dr. Pew is a livestock vet here. He has some cattle fenced a ways from Blu. Well...the flippin' cows got out!!! At least 15. They came and ate up half of Blu's hay and got it EVERYWHERE! Stupid cows. The hay was all over the area with urine and cow pies scattering the place. My mom bought the five bales of hay yesterday. So, of course, they had to be brand new. :x

Took my mom and family two hourse to clean up. I insisted on going but Mom would not let me miss practice when we have a game Thursday. :?

Doc Pew gave my mom the money to go get more hay because the filthy hay would make Blu sick, you know. Then Mom was talking to Dad about it and he said that Dr. Pew never had to pay Mom back. Because Arizona is a free-range state or something. And cows can go wherever. :roll:

All in all, it was a long morning. I was just wondering whether or not the cows could make Blu sick. I didn't think he could get sick but I'm not sure. Are there any illnesses or anything like that I should be aware of just in case? Thanks! :wink:

Ah, I wonder how many states still have the free-range laws in effect? Was good of him to be a gentleman about it.

Ya, that's what Mom said. It was very nice of him. He's the bet that came to check Blu out during the summer when he colicked. ( that was the first time I got to interact with Blu while he was lying down! ) :roll:

I was hoping there wasn't anything that cattle could transfer to Blu. I don't want him to be sick. He is doing so good! :wink:

I see horses and cattle in the same pasture all the time so no danger that I know of. They just have messier poo :wink:

you shouldnt have to be worried. During the fires here in california 3 months ago, my horse was the only one that would go in the corral with this lonesome cow so he and the cow were together for like 4 days and theres cows and horses together across the street from my stables. They even eat the same things.

ugg I hate when that happens :(

BluMagic 01-06-2008 11:06 PM

Well I know they can be together but I am just being a little cautious... :wink:
