Vicky Pike: A harrowing day in Greater Bliss/New Columbia
A major quandary: Our heroine finds member of first feeding, Bonnie Sue, laying upside down on concrete feed bunk.

Greater Bliss Cow & Tractor, Ogre & Haint correspondent
What a harrowing day at Miss Victoria's.
I fed one group grain and went off to feed another bunch.
When I returned to the house and the first bunch I could see, white feet sticking up from the concrete feed bunk. As I rushed closer, there lays Bonnie Sue, peaceable white heifer, laying upside down in the concrete feed bunk.
What to do and quick was my first thought after attempting to help her. Short little farmer can't lift a cow.
So, I jumped in Miss Mahindra and put the front end loader under the bunk and slowly started to raise up and tilt so it would turn over on its side.
Bonnie Sue rolls out, wobbles a bit and gets up and takes off.
Thank goodness nothing broken.
By this time I was sopping wet with sweat and heart racing. Whew! what an afternoon.
No pictures available since phone was left behind in the mad dash to get Miss Mahindra.
Not sure how Bonnie Sue got into such a mess but I figure a squabble between sisters got out of hand. --Victoria Pike
