After much dilly dallying around (is she in heat, is she not in heat, do we want to breed her this early.....) we finally got my miniature Jersey/Holstein bred to one of the premier mini Jerseys. He's a paint so we're hoping for great things that can't possibly happen with the genetics we're working with but anyway. She was bred July 4th. Preg tested positive and we brought her home. Now she's been sharing the pasture with an abandoned horse. We finally got the horse owner to pick up his horse and Starry Star seemed to take it okay-it was the goat who was distraught. Then two days later she walked around all day mooing. I paid some extra attention to her, gave her some treats and a little extra hay and kept checking her. No blood under the tail no blood down the legs or on her sides so I'm hoping she's just really stupid and it took her that long to realize her friend was gone. Wouldn't a 2 month miscarriage still be pretty messy? Please tell me I have a stupid cow and that I haven't lost that very valuable calf/calves inside her belly.
