Heifer Won't Walk
« on: July 07, 2013, 03:30:33 PM »
We have a young heifer that is halter broke, but won't walk unless someone is behind her poking her to.  What can we do to fix this problem?  Thanks!

Have a certified animal chiropractor check her cervical spine. Sometimes pulling on the halter will cause pain and they will resist leading. G-Luck
