Cow with vaginal bleeding gasoline p

####

I have a shorthorn cow that just had her 2nd calf. I bought her bred about 8 months ago and the seller who was honest and said she had a 120lb calf as a heifer that was one of the hardest pulls he has had. I got a good deal on her, so I bought her. She had her 2nd calf a little over 10 days ago (Had calf on March 30th) which was a moderate pull with a handle and chains by myself, no puller and she was standing up but had been pushing for a 1 1/2 hours with little improvement. The calf was a 100lb calf, shorthorn calf and nothing clubby. She is having small amounts of vaginal bleeding and nothing major as it dries up and then you see a little after she urinates. She is a good cow that milks very well and I like her calf. I don’t know why she is having such big calves but was going to breed her on another shorthorn bull I seen in Denver this year Talledaga which had a 90 lb birth, nothing she has not had yet as far as birth weight, but that is another topic. But should I be concerned about the little vaginal blood or should I be contacting my vet? Don’t know if she had some scar tissue from her hard pull as a heifer which was ripped open from this pull, but not large amounts of blood just little drips after she urinates that drips on the ground, probably 10 to 15 drops. Don’t know if it is dried blood inside that is coming out when she urinates or if she is still bleeding slightly. Don’t think she will bleed out, just concerned about infection setting in. She is acting normal as she is eating and drinking fine while walking around and letting her calf nurse. Anyone with information is appreciated.

Ok paperwork from the American Shorthorn Association shows my cow a red roan as having a sire of WR UNO Bonito (roan) who was a (SIRE) Shouflers El Bonito 104X ET (roan) BY (DAM) AR SU LU MAMIE 020 (red and white). Then the dam of the cow is DDET Meg N90 (red and white) who has a (sire) of Oakview Double Mint (roan) by (Dam) Shalimar Princess Meg 090 (red). Then the bull of that the calf (Red and white) is sired by AR SU LU Massive 3140 (red) out of a dam of BSG Monica 322 DOC (Red). The cow shows a 3.3 Birth EPD with her sire having a 3.3 and her dam having a 3.4. Then the bull of the calf showed a 2.7 Birth EPD with his sire having a 1.1 and his dam having a 4.2. The cows registration number through the association is X4159726 if you want to look all of her pedigree up.

Thanks Frostback and Gargan for you response on the bleeding. Thanks OH breeder for your response, she is a big enough cow that if she has another 100lb calf, I am not worried as she has had 2 both being pulled, I will just watch her close. This heifer she had was BIG in bone structure, so it was more her build than her weight why I think she had to be pulled.
