February 2, 1751

1751 February 2 (Saturday).  At Eve in much Trouble.  A Cow ready to Calve missing: and my young Horse lam’d himself in the Stable.  He was hung by one of his fore feet in the floor of the Manger, and after much Striving fell down on the outside of the Manger, in great pain — but was heard and Seasonably reliev’d — but the Cow (which I bought of Mr. James Ball) missing all night though we search’d up and down the woods till about midnight, and considerable Snow upon the Ground.
