After school detention

Today Spunky gave us a half gallon of milk again. She is holding back for her calf and giving us the minimum for being able to scarf up all the grain she can eat. She then is bolting out of the barn and back to her calf. So this morning she is serving some detention in the milking parlor till she calms down and learns to stand patiently. When she is patient she gets some more food. When she is impatient, she gets to wait. This is something we didn’t do with her last cycle and she came from a dairy where the cows were handled relatively rough. It takes time and I wasn’t prepared last time to do this bit I think its time to break bad habits.

Here you can see Spunky serving detention. She’s not terribly pleased but she is getting the idea.
