Broken teat

Was checking the cows last Friday when I walked by #22 cow and had to do a double take. The right front teat was bent at an almost 90° angle. I know I've never seen something like that. Have You? :lol2:

If you zoom in on it, it looks like there is a hair strangling it? Perhaps not, but kinda looks that way:

Looks, to me, like the mystery is solved. Good eye!

Also, if she just stood up, sometimes a teat is bent under the weight of the cow & stays bent for a while when she gets up.
