How to beat the heat . . . .

I've only ever seen one of mine go off into water, and wet hair contacting the hot wire on the other side made him reconsider the heifers on the other side.
Red cows and white cows here graze all day long, unless they're full and laying down chewing cud.

Great, until they decide to calve there!

Careful, you might be breeding hippos :P

I've heard of plenty of cows calving right by the water and lots of calves lost... never a canadian cow though... Was it M5 or Sky that got really lucky not long ago?

I was just thinking about that. I haven't seen our heavy brimmer influenced cattle off in tanks like that. Angus bull or some thing ya... but most of the cattle just lay under a tree. We do have pretty good shade and tanks may have gators depending on where you are.

As much as they hang out in the ponds & the lake, I'm fortunate none of my girls have ever calved near (or in!) the water.

But Steamroller is dangerously hippo-esque! Lord knows she's buoyant and fat enough :oops:

I can tell right away that isn't anywhere close to 'here'.
Too many rocks and the landscape is crooked.

But, it does appear, that those red and whites fell in with bad companions and took up some of their bad habits.
