We "tutored" all our goats this weekend. And by "tutored", I mean the wife and her friend put bands on their bits and me and her husband winced in pain.
Yeah, I've helped castrate calves before. Not a happy time.
What scared us the most was that the boys scream more getting a shot. After we tutored them, they walked around and carried on like nothing happened. If it was me, I would have made a little more of a scene.
I guess we were branding too, so that was probably even more painful.
Barkley got that done when he was still a young lad and didn't know any better. He was champion blood lines but he was a handful NOT fixed so.I called the vet to set it up. Previous dogs came already set up so I wasn't sure as to the cost. So I asked. The vet tech said "it depends on weight".I replied (deadpan) "but they're just a few ounces. . . . "
