a new acheivement for me
In the army I learned to give shots as part of the 47th Field Hospital at one point the 47 th CSB prov part of the 214th FA to give shoots to humans today I gave my first shot to an equine patient. My wife nicked Samwise with a pitchfork while cleaning up after the horses and we did not know when he last had a tetanus shot as a precaution. I could have had the vet come out and give the shoot but I have felt able to do this an d we went to the vet picked up the stuff and I gave it to the horse. cost 8 bucks and we have no established relations with the local horse vet. so with our trainer on hand to point out where I should stab the horse.
