I, personally, would not put a cow in the same pasture as a horse, regardless of the circumstances. I've seen to many wrecks happen as a result of it. Why not just pen the cow, add the required medication to her water, and let it go at that?

Women and cats are going to do what they want, men and dogs would be wise to accept this.

If there is any doubt at all seperate them and put them on different water sources.Z

Well actually the cow and horse are like best friends and the graze together and everything and the cow just had her baby Last Friday so we would split the horse and cow but the cow won't even come up to the pens and stays at the North end at all time. The only time she comes up is at night to get a drink.

I too would seperate them, even if they are best buds, not only because of the meds but of the calf. Take a few minutes and build a paddock next to the cow using hot wire and move the horse for a while. Why take a chance?

I'm not afraid of hard work, I can lay down next to it and fall asleep without a problem.
