I'd like to thank everyone here for their advice and concern. It really helped me through a very traumatic time in my life.
Guys and gals, the outpouring of love I'm feeling from all of you is almost too much for me to handle. I read your concerned replies and I had to, well.... damn it, I had to cry.
I sat back in my chair and wailed like a baby. "Where would I be without my friends from A2K, I thought.

I tossed prodigious amounts of water on the cow, as advised by littlek and Roger. Next, I sprinkled some Acme Organic Ground Bone Fertilizer in the area right around her. (good call, farmerman)
I purchased a popsicle stick and a helium balloon from the hardware store, as advised by edgarblythe, but I wasn't quite sure what to do with them. I'll save them for the next party at the VFW.
But I'll have to say that dagmaraka is a friggin' genius! Acting upon her advice, I sprinkled "garlick" on and around the fallen beast.
To my surprise , the animal started to stir, and moments later attempted to struggle to its feet. I raced to the house and called Doc Lepistuder.
He's out there now attending to her...
Doc told me, "Gus, if it wasn't for your friends coming to you and Bessie in your darkest hour, you probably would have lost this magnificent creature. Consider yourself a lucky man."
