I had to tattoo a junior Saanen this evening since I forgot I had not done that and she is entered in the State Fair next week. She is my favorite little Saanen and has never been shown but she is easy to handle and loves to go for walks with me. Hopefully that will mean she will be a good girl in the showring. Maybe not after what I did to her today. I hit a vein with the tatto thingie and she bled all over both of us. I had blood all over my shirt, my arms, my hands and I just noticed my left leg has blood on it too. How could one little ear lose that much blood from a tattoo?? Finally got it stopped and she "seemed" to forgive me but she might just remember that episode when she gets me in the showring. Not looking forward to that. Hopefully some extra feed and some petting will help make her forget the torture today.
I work part time as well as raise and show dairy goats and make and sell goat milk soaps and lotions. My life is BUSY!!
