I hate the thought of what is to come tomorrow, but our little steer is getting De-Horned. As some of you know. LD "Little Dude" is a Miniature Scottish Highlander. We saved him from becoming steak in someone's freezer. I've had a rough go of things here lately. June 30, 2013 & July 6, 2013 I had heart attaches. Since them I've had 6 mini strokes & go temporally blind on my right eye. March 3, 2014 I was told I have congestive Heart failure. I still raise chickens and ducks for eggs, but love seeing LD out running around. Anytime I walk out to the coop or barn, LD wants to play. Since he was bottle feed and a petting zoo steer, he acts like he's a dog. Enjoys being petted, brushed, etc. I do what I can, but lately he runs up to me, sticks his horns either in my back or tips his head do his horns go under my butt and picks me up. He's full grown at a wapping 500 pounds. With my blood thinners, I bruise very easy. So tomorrow around 2:30 LD's getting his horn removed. I hope he dies well and this helps him do better with us. If not I'll be posting to find him a good home. Grumpy.....
