I had one this year with REALLY red eyes. . Benign neglect and it was fine..... I think it was the #7z heifer and her mother plops calves out easily usually though I didn't see this particular birth.

I have a couple that are just prone to redness around the eyes. Genetics? Never seem to bother them, not one has had a case of pinkeye. Benign neglect, maybe some Vetericyn to soothe the eye.

Photo is not the best but the cornea seems clear and the redness seems to be around the sclera. The thin mobile membrane covering it can easily have blood pooling under it from some form of trauma, the trauma may be further at the back of the eye but over a few days it spreads out and gravitates and you see it around the edges. You see it a lot in fighters and footballers (rugby) when they do interviews the day after the fight but usually if their luck holds it disperses.
