    It will always be crooked. It's not that uncommon of an injury especially in the dairy industry. It's been this long, as long as it isn't bothering him I'd leave him be.
    Do you know how it got broke?

    No reason to worry with the tail if he isn't slaughtered by spring may wanna keep fly dust on him regularly as he may not be effective with it. But nothing to worry about.
