>Baby Horse Shot
Bandit, the neighbor’s new foal has developed a snotty nose.
The neighbor and Mrs. G don’t do injections.
She catches the horses and mellows them out and I do the dirty deed.
Penicillin is a thick, chalky substance.
The needle needs to be big so the fluid will flow through the tip.
Needless to say, the mama doesn’t like the procedure.
It can be dangerous if the baby gets too wild. The mama can drop you with one kick.
Even the baby can hurt you pretty bad with it’s hard pointy feet.
We completed the task with a minimum of hurt feelings.
Not too bad for a couple of City Slickers from Las Vegas.
