Well, he got stuck and stuck good and proper. Twenty cc's of the good stuff right on target. How? My seventeen year old daughter did it.
Before you get all freaked out, here's what happened. I'm really squeamish about giving shots. I get better every day, but still a little nervous. She was going out to feed so I said wait.... while you pour Bear's feed I want to try and give him a shot through the fence.
So out there we went, her with her bucket and me with my syringe. Then I proceeded to hem and haw around trying to build up my nerve.
Note: Never get between a teenage girl and her upcoming date.
After five minutes or so, she lost her patience with me.
"I'm gonna be late. Give me that stupid thing."
She snatched the syringe from my hand, climbed up on the side of the fence and, reaching over, in one jab had the needle buried up to the hilt in his neck. He made a little unhappy noise and wandered off a few feet. Then when he came back, the syringe still protruding from his neck, she jammed the plunger home and yanked out the needle.
Well. This is exactly how I have been told to do it. She needed no instructions she just did it. I remember when I was seventeen and could do anything and was scared of nothing.
