So... hubby and I went to do the other half of our herd for annual blood draws this morning ( we do yearly screening for CAE, CL and Johne's but do half the herd and then 6 months later the other half... helps with cost. ) Anyways... first doe took 10 minutes trying to get a blood sample... my clippers broke so we are just using the "bulge" technique... all we got was a splash of blood and then nada............. ugh... gave up and am taking em all to the vet tomorrow. :angry: Poor girl got poked on both sides of her neck and she just sat in my lap snuggling me. That is the bummer about silkies.... trying to do blood draws without shaving is IMPOSSIBLE!!
