Giving a goat kid Fastrack ...

Get the Fastrack & Syringe
TRY to get the fastrack into the syringe
Gloops out faster than expected and all over hands
Try Again
After several tries later ~ we finally have it somewhat inside the syringe :thumbup:
Go in pen and get kid
push through 7 other does and kids while trying to get to the correct one
Get jumped on by large nubian mix doe - OUCH ! &^%&^*Y*#@$!**&%#$ :veryangry:
Finally get to kid and pick it up
look aimlessly around for a place to sit the Fastrack tube and the syringe down while gettnig a better grip on kid :scratch:
find place, sit stuff down
goats jumping up from left and right trying to get the Fastrack you just sat down there ! :roll:
Shooing goats away
Trying to convince kid to make it easy and just open it's mouth and suck down the fastrack :wink:
Not Working :shrug:
While leaning against tree for balance and to help hold kid ~ try freeing hands enough to pry kid's mouth open with one hand, and administer fastrack with the other
Other goats jumping up trying to see what they're missing out on and trying to nab fastrack ! :hair: (goats that otherwise would fight against me when I try to give them the stuff)
Squirt Fastrack in kid's mouth .... YAH ! :dance:
Think you're done ? :pray:
NOT !! :tears:
still some fastrack left that kid didn't get :coffee2:
Ok - there's another kid that could use some :idea:
Try to give other kid fastrack :thumbup:
Kid opens mouth WILLINGLY - Squeeze syrinde down to administer ... :yum:
Kid SHUTS mouth - Fastrack goes on another kid's ear ! #@%$*! :hair:
Use finger and get fastrack off kid's ear so not to waste it
Get attacked by large goat trying to get fastrack
OK - FINE - offer large attack goat the fastrack on fingers - to LICK off :doh:
OUCH ! GOAT BITING FINGER ! WON'T LET GO ! OUCH ! OUCH ! LET GO ! :hair: :tears: :help:
Finally after trying to bite finger completely off - goat let's go.

Walk away - sticky hands, teeth marks on fingers, 3 goats given fastrack when only one was intended to get it and hoof prints all over clothes. :scratch:

OH THE JOYS OF HAVING GOATS !

hahaha ~ yeah I usually give directly from the tube itself as well, but this time I didn't - this was actually the FIRST time that I tried doing it with syringe, to see how it would go, and if I'd do it that way from now on, or just continue doing from the tube. Well, needless to say - TUBE FOR ME !!!
