In my previous post, I was trying to figure out how a calf escaped from confinement. By the process of elimination, we have decided she jumped out. Remember the cow that jumped over the moon? Perhaps she got her reputation doing something like Gypsy did.
There are no spots in either of the two pens occupied by the calves where Gypsy could have squeezed through, or under, the fence. The permanent pen behind the barn is very tall woven wire fencing rather than barbed wire, which would be easy for a calf to crawl through. The other is woven wire on three sides and cattle and hog panels on the other, and therein, we are sure, lies the problem.
Weather here in Missouri has taken a turn toward "frigid", so as you can see, we have had to put a stock tank heater in the tub the calves drink from. You would be surprised how much water three calves under the age of one month can drink, even in winter.
