Our final story for calving week – belongs to Wade, and it’s a messy tale!
It had been a long, wet winter – the kind of winter that creates nothing but a mess when the snow melts. It didn’t help that additional rains came after the snow was gone and the whole countryside was squishy with water. It also happened to be calving time at Wade’s house. He was out riding - checking on the cows when he noticed one acting strangely.
She had calved the day before, but her calf was nowhere in sight. She was hanging around their pond and acting very distressed. So he rode over to her and that’s when he found the calf, up to its stomach in mud near the pond bank. When you come upon these situations you always wonder – how in the heck do they get themselves in these predicaments?
