Collar off, and the hunger strike is also off!

I was right about the e-collar. Cow hates it and he was protesting against it by going on that hunger strike. Despite me taking off the collar during mealtimes, he still refused to eat.

This evening, Cow knew the collar was "officially off", so after a major 45-minute self-grooming session, Cow decided to join the rest for a meal....

 For the first time in 4 days, he trotted out by himself when he heard the rest eating.

 This is truly a sight for sore eyes.

Cow is eating!!

 Yes, Cow is really eating!!

 Well, actually...I was the one who asked Cow to eat, you know.

 After the meal.

 This is a happy sight indeed.

 Cow even went to lick some of Bobby's dinner later.

 Happy Cow, I hope.

He does occasionally lick the wound, but that's a compromise we have to make.
Hopefully, our theory is correct - less stress, quicker healing.
