One of my dear cows has torn some ligaments in her leg and is hobbling along. I rub liniment in it, keep the ground as level as I can, and have them confined in the barn, but there seems to be nothing else I can do. The vet was over (and I know ... many farmers would chuckle and think me lame for calling a vet for a twisted knee) but we put a halter on them both, and then the vet strapped on a very long glove, disappeared his arm into Cheeky Butt's self named orifice and declared her well along in calf. Curls is further ahead (Feb.) CB lets me lift her leg and apply a healing touch and we both feel better afterwards. They live in a huge old gambrel roof barn with so much space. Its an old dairy barn and still has the milking stanchions, and gutters in place. Below is a picture of her from early this year.
