She needed medical attention, so Lad, Josue and Marco got to work helping this calf. An injury like this is rare on our farm. A splint was made, then the leg was set with the cloth-lined pipe splint before being bound with hoof wrap.
|She's a tough, strong calf|
In a week, the splint will be taken off to check the leg. Then the dressing and splint will be re-applied.
|She's protected from the wind and cold|
Everything is being done to help her leg heal so she recovers and becomes a healthy heifer.
