NOOOOOO luck finding calf that's out>>HELP : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

We looked all over. Will a calf go into a marsh area when it has brooks and streams to drink out of? We live on a river and the tide goes in and out and the banks are like quicksand would she possibly go here. I just can't imagine where it is. I rode on horseback for 2+ hrs. today and nothing. Would a calf also go across a very deep and wide river?? We're going out again tom.. I never thought this calf would go out of sight... I'm still hanging in there thou... Any suggestions go ahead. We also have someone with a roping team lined up to go out once we find her.. No one would go into this area without being seen so she wasn't stolen. Well speak to you soon James

I have seen cows swim complete lakes of hundreds of acres, it might be time to return to the drawing board.

We have had calves to leave and never be found again.... Thru swamps, 4 lane highways, suburban neighborhoods, etc. Hope that you have better luck!

A calf that size can hide amazingly well!Been there.I have had the best luck tying another cow nearby.I have an old cow who has been borrowed several times for that purpose.I wish I were closer you would be welcome to her.Best of luck.

I just heard this story recently and it is the truth---HONEST!!!! A guy that works with my husband went out after dark looking for his cow and put a flashlight under his chin yelling "Look Bessie, it's me- -Don't be afraid."

It didn't work but it did happen :o)

Do you know of anyone who is a private pilot? You can spot animals from the air easier than you'd think. If your local airport has a flying club they might help out just for the fun of it.

Have you looked in anyone's freezer?
