<P>10 JUNE 2016 RANCH HORSE JOURNAL have never seen one, it reminds me of a moist pink Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man with knobs on it. Once that uterus falls out the back of a cow, it takes an act of Congress to get it poked back in. There is almost no way this one sucked back in on its own during the trailer ride. What happened to the prolapse, Tom? I asked. Doc, I asked you to meet me here to put a uterus back in, not a prolapse. Now I was the puzzled one. Tom just stood there looking at me like I was supposed to understand. Finally he explained what had happened. Well Doc, this ol cow had a youngun this afternoon and she spilled her uterus. You know what I am talking about, you and I have fixed a many of em together. But this cow was way out in the back side of the Smith pasture and we had to rope her to get her in the trailer. Well, Dave got the calf and I took out after the cow. She was running purty fast and the terrain was purty rough. I guess I got my loop a little too big and I didnt get my slack pulled out fast enough and my loop sucked down in time and all I caught was that big ol uterus. Well, I didnt really realize it until it was too late, and I pulled the whole uterus off in one piece. But I put it in a feed sack and thought maybe you could put it back on. My puzzled look remained. We put the cow in the chute and discovered that somehow he had cinched that loop down tight enough around the base of the uterus that it ligated those vessels with either friction heat or constriction. She wasnt even bleeding. To a cowboy, a feed sack is a sterile environ- ment. Tom had seen one of his roping buddies get his thumb pulled off and they put the thumb in a feed sack, took him to the hospital and the doctor sewed it back on. He assumed I could do the same thing with a 40-pound uterus. No, that wasnt going to happen. Amazingly, the cow lived. And just to be turds, they ran her through the working chute that fall while I was palpating for preg- nancy just to see if I would call her bred. Thank God I said she was open.

THE COWBOY HAD A STRANGE LOOK ON HIS face as I walked toward the trailer that con- tained his cow. I had known this fella for years and didnt recall ever seeing him with such a perplexed look on his face. The phone call an hour ago was short. He simply told me he had a uterus on one of his cows he needed put back in. I had replaced many a prolapsed uterus for the gentleman, and couldnt imag- ine what would cause such an expression. It is a fairly long walk from the back of the clinic to the unloading alley and I had a moment to evaluate the situa- tion. The cow stood facing me in the trailer and it looked like she had a per- plexed look on her face, too. As I got closer, the cow turned a bit and … hmm, no prolapse. I shook the cowboys hand as I studied his face and wondered what had become of the prolapse. If you Can You Put This Back in for Me?
