Our other cow, Valley, who'd been here a couple of months also escaped this morning, because I had thought the other escapee had jumped the ditch and didn't fix the place which my children (who are always right ) had said was messed up.
So Valley went way down the road to find that herd of cows and we got her back, but her feet and legs got a bit wet (like she hadn't been standing out in the rain for the past couple of days...) and she is shivering, not constantly, but a cold shivering instead of a shaking because of flies.
My daughter had her tied up in the lean-to where she was out of the wind, but when I untied her, she went right out to meet the new cow. I can take her back to the lean-to and re-tie her (my daughter had used a different rope and I didn't want Valley to get stangled), but since she moved right on out, I wondered if I needed to do anything about this? And if so, besides putting her back in the lean-to, what?
ETA: Oops, posted too soon My daughter had fed her grain to get her back, so I hadn't wanted to feed her more.

lanbsemana2: We feed hahaha grass hay..same as we feed the horses..we have tried more than 2 squares but she won't eat that much..she does eat green leaves off the underbrush that's in her pen area but don't think that would be enough to keep her from eating hay pic sn
