We had to wean calves the other day, which meant we had to begin by gathering pairs. A pair , you’ll remember from my many brilliantly (or not) taught Working Ranch 101 lessons, is a mama cow and her nursing calf . Eventually, the calves get too big to stay on the teat, but it’s not as if the cow has the parenting skills to slowly introduc a sippy cup and gradually wean the calf herself. Those mama cows, I tell ya—they’re dedicated, if nothing else. In this particular pasture, some of the cows were pregnant or had already given birth to new calves and were still nursing their firstborn. It’s enough to make a mother of young children like me wince with imagined pain. Pain in my areolae. Pain in my back. Pain in my soul and my neck and my bottom. Pain everywhere.
Stevie came into the practice with his grandma with the same symptoms as his father. Sam believed there was a cause for the symptoms in the kitchen where his grandmother cooked them food. Sam drew blood to test for ingestible poisons. The test revealed coprine, a mushroom extract which reacts with alcohol to cause nausea and vomiting. Sam figured out that the grandmother was giving them to Stevie's father to stop him from drinking. After Stevie's grandmother pleaded with Sam not to tell her son, because it would work to get him to stop drinking, Sam lied and told Dave and Stevie that Dave was allergic to alcohol and would have to quit drinking and that it was probably genetic, so Stevie also shouldn't drink.
