we were gearing up for a glamor photo of galaxy, with a message of thanks to the universe for our baby growing up healthy, without injury to cow or human

then last night we did a double take when we saw a rat in the cow shed. except it wasn't a rat, it was the tip of galaxy's tail. a quick search online confirmed our suspicion that this probably happened when eclipse stepped on galaxy's tail

we cleaned the wound and applied antibiotic ointment. to prevent infection we also instituted a rigorous floor cleaning regime - any cow patty must be removed within 5 minutes, and the wood chips must be replaced daily, as opposed to every 48 hours

apparently the tuft will grow back, around the wound. galaxy and her mama are very close and we have no plans to separate them because of this freak accident
