omg what a night

Post by Admin on February 1st 2008, 5:57 pm

after I got home from work I went out to milk goats, found one of the lil bucks out flat pretty much dead. I have never milked so fast in my life. I got him back to the house and warmed up some towels in the dryer wrapped him up, and started praying, Called mom to let her know and she told me to give him a shot of some stuff that we give to the new Born's, Also I tried giving him some milk with black coffee to it, it is suppose to perk him up, he was not doing to good with the bottle, he wasn't sucking at all. I rigged up a feeding tube from a syringe and some fish tank air hose tubing, you thread the hose down his throat and into his tummy, and feed him that way. it worked like a charm so pretty much 8 hours straight he was on my lap and I was tubing him every hour.
I want to thank Deb, Tree, Dustin, and belair for being in chat with me it helped tremendously to have peeps to talk to.
I have no idea why he did not die but he is doing very good today and is standing though he is very wobbly
here are a couple pics of him from last night when he was bad off and could not hold his head up. I will get some pics of him later when I feed him again.
yes he is wearing a diaper grin I didn't want a wet lap lol and the black bits on his head is from when I disbudded him earlier in the week.
