HardTimes But with help we can get through them 

Just over a week ago i called a vet out to look at my 3 cows, as twilight has a very swollen udder (as you can see from the images below, freckles normal udder in the centre photo)

She has mastitis and NEEDS to be treated but the place we live is really not a good set up for such big animals and i now know that i HAVE to get something sorted so that these girls can be treated safely for both the handler and the cow…

Sadly the vet could get nowhere near them to treat them and i was told that if i cannot sort either a move or a better holding system here where we live, then the only option would be to rehome them.

I have worried myself sick as to let these girls go would truly break my heart..They are mamamoos babies (she is the reason C-A-L-F exists)

I called so many farmers and asked for help, but most are very busy at this time of year…

I looked at better fields that would be more suitable but i just do not have the funds or the time as Twilight NEEDS to be treated urgently

My final call to a man who has done fence work for me and he is prepared to come and look ASAP to try and fix our home system BUT WE NEED HELP

Freckles has an open sore on her eye which we have managed to treat but she has sores around her udder, we have gevan them garlic, apple cider and a fly treatment to keep the flies away, but she to could do with penicillin which means an injection and the only way is to be able to get these girls in a holding system

The photos below show the present system which has been used in the passed but after witnessing the horror show of freckles jumping the gate and trapping her leg this year trying to avoid TB testing i am not prepared to put any of them through this again as it is not safe for handler or cow..
The land where the cows go in winter becomes a total mud pit and needs diggers in to dig out and rubble laying, the crush we have needs moving and a professional race system to walk the cows into, which means new post work and race hurdles building
If we can get this work done this would mean that next year we would have a better more organised non dangerous way to catch these girls and take them to the whitby field, as well as be able to treat them professionally when they are ill

The small horse stable was fine, but three years later these girls are massive and when it comes to put them away in the winter, this space becomes very tight and twilight is a bully to little LuVu
Yet we could get the wall knocked through so that we could separate the girls, so that they can still see each other, giving twice the space and no fear of injury’s from horn damage as all our cows have not been debudded

Now the difficult part….To do all the work above AND get the vet care that is needed i ESTIMATE around 2500.00 (the most expensive part is the diggers and the stone ) and i have bartered no end
If i cannot raise the money, i dread to think of the outcome…

I thank you in advance, if i can sort the MAJOR issue then the weight lifted would mean so much knowing that our 3 cows can be handled professionally for their sake X


This year we have achieved so much, but sadly calf has experienced a lot of hardluck the past few months and the strain both physically and financially is crippling us…
With blow after blow i do not know how long we can keep going.

I have put propertys up for sale to try and raise funds to clear debts and get a move to a place where we can open to the public…
But i am not sure i can wait long enough for the propertys to sell
I may lose everything i have worked for and if i do then a huge part of me will die with it, simply because i will have to rehome my much loved rescues
Can you help, physically or financially
