R.I.P. Javelot 2011-2015
Our large gentle bull, Javelot, died. He was off his feed for a few days then rallied as if all was well, then died one afternoon a few days later. The vet says it could have been for any number of reasons but he thinks Javelot ate a stray pice of wire from the hay bale and it punctured a stomach and got infected. The infection part was obvious, it was throughout his intestines. The vet said he probably could not have saved Javelot even if we had called him a few days earlier. “Bulls are just delicate” is what he said. So has everyone else with whom we have shared our misfortune. Who would have thought bulls were delicate.
