This morning we found that my first time momma, Bobbie, had her ear badly mangled due to fighting off coyotes. She has a new baby that is only about a week old and they were after it. She had stashed baby in a brush pile and was very uneasy. She even ran the family lab out of the pasture completely with much ferver. She has never been aggressive toward the dog before so I am positive that she understands that canines are a threat to baby. this is a very good thing but I am most worried that perhaps she can not fend a pack off a second time. I fear they may come back now that they know there is a baby in the pasture. i will just die if anything happens to that little heifer! I looked for a jack today but had no luck. I am still beating the bushes and maybe I will find one very soon I have other heifers due to calve soon. i need a guardian quickly!
