The Big Show / Help.... Fair is next week and Steer is lame this AM
« on: August 06, 2013, 08:00:33 AM »
Morning, My daugther's steer is lame this am.  This steer is a multi-time-champ at jackpot shows this summer.  Fair starts Sunday..... We went to bring him in the barn this morning and he is very lame on his front left leg.  We checked his hoof for foreign objects and check for any areas that are warm on his leg and shoulder.  We soaked his leg with cold water for 15 minutes.  The only thing we noticed was an area that was slightly swollen (not warm at all) just above his hoof ... He will only put weight on his leg if he has to walk.   My big concern is if it is his shoulder.

Besides "drugs" what else can we do?  We will water/ice it again this around noon and he'll have his normal all-day stall time with the fans.  Does anyone have any ideas for special wraps? ways to check his shoulder?

Thank you in advance!

Goat/Lamb Chat / Need some advise for a stuborn lamb
« on: May 22, 2011, 06:56:22 AM »
We are new to lambs. my youngest daughter wanted to show lambs this year so we have a pair.  We are working with them to walk on a rope at this point.  The wether is doing fine, but the ewe is stubborn throwing her head and even leaping/striking at the person walking her.  With cattle we would use an attitude adjustment on the snout, what do you do with lambs?


The Big Show / Advise: calving
« on: May 10, 2011, 10:09:23 AM »
Here is the scenario, my daughters 3 year old shorthorn is due (actually due yesterday), she is bagged up nice and completely relaxed.  For the last day she will lay down give a couple of mild pushed and then lay upright and chew her cud or get up and move around.  How long would most of you let her go like this before checking her?  By the way she is bred straight shorthorn.

I was wondering how people clip for winter shows?  Do you peel the hair on the neck or just clean it up?


The Big Show / Showmanship Question
« on: August 11, 2010, 07:17:00 AM »
Our daughter (age 9) has won showmanship twice at our fair at ages 6 & 8 and has been in the top 6 of much larger shows. She is a perfectionist and very competitive.  This past summer we attened a state show and nationals where all we took was a cow/calf pair.  For showmanship she used the calf  both times.  He never acted up once, never made a sound, and walked like a true champion for her.  At the state show the judge placed her int he middle of the pack and his comment was "she could be a great showman, but bringing a calf into the ring is not a smart choice, however you can see that she has worked with the calf. Because of the calf I have to put her in the middle."    At Nationals the judge never said a word about it being a calf.   I know it's one mans opinion on one day, but this leads us to a choice for our county fair and just a general showmanship question.  For the fair we are taking the cow/calf and her market steer.  Her steer has been acting up lately and she is having trouble turning him, so she's asked to take the calf (now 5 months old)  in for showmanship.  Her agruement to us was "at age 6 I won showmanship with Cassie (a lowline calf) and it's going to be the same judge!."  After she said that we realized this is her showing, not us. We told her that it's her choice and explained that she'll have to live with the outcome, good or bad.  (yet another life lesson learned in the barn)

1)  She's questioning why the judge looks at the size of your animal?  Isn't showmanship about me and how well I show the animal?

2) if you had the choice what would you pick: a cow, a calf, or the not so nice steer for showmanship?

Thanks for your input.
