Re: [RC] [RC] needle shy horse - Shelley Kerr

Has anyone else seen how Robert Miller, DVM one leg hobbles a horse?  I saw him do it for a demo with a needle freak horse at a seminar.  I've done it on horses I have for various other reasons to get them to stand still.

Drawing blood from the Jbird is not a problem, nor is giving tranq's for floating teeth, etc. But when he sees a syringe - he is in orbit usually on his hind feet.

There's no way of saying 'okay' without sounding as though I'm being
disrespectful to my elders,<g> but I've won a couple of pretty good beer
wagers so far getting to be the one to vaccinate the 'uninjectable' horse.
I'm sure it'll catch up with me someday, probably sooner than later, but
done okay so far.   Banzai vaccinating's easy---sometimes getting a jugular
sample is pretty interesting and getting a 12 cc blood sample from the
facial sinus---now THAT's exciting.  :-)
