What is it Murray? It looks like something that used to be alive.

Uh-oh! Based on the coat, looks like a black Lab or calf. You're definitely having a rough day!

Hmm, no spots. Nothing ruins a beautiful afternoon like running a fawn through the hay conditioner.
You feel bad for hitting the little rascals. Then you cuss them the whole time your unplugging the mower and replacing sickle sections.
Never fear them, but ALWAYS respect them.

I'd have been much less upset if had been a fawn.
Those lil guys usually jump and run!
I sure agree tho. Ruined a very nice day

Sorry to hear that. That's something I've never had to encounter, don't think I want to either.

Is that common for cattle to be in hay fields while cutting?

I wish someone would go to cutting hay here. We could use the rain.
