I would think a piece of 1" in diameter clear, plastic tubing would work - probably measure from her mouth to the last rib to determine the length. You will also need a block of wood or something with a hole drilled into it to put in the goats mouth to keep her from biting the tubing in two.

TCS may sell a drech set for cows, or s bovine supply store...its a bit large but it will work...it comes with a bottle attached
I dont think a piece of wood will be needed..you will go down fairly straight so back teeth should not bit down on it..

Best wishes

I've used these to stomach tube an adult goat. It is for "calves" though. Minor detail, but it might make a difference if you were asking someone if they had any. It scared the crap out of me to do it, but I didn't have much to lose as poor Blanch was dying. She lived.
Mine has the plastic probe.
