I imagine I will be able to get it done quick. Like ripping off a band-aid, lol.
I've seen people give shots a thousand times, I know what I want to do, and I know what I don't. I've seen people pinch the skin, and also do a tap, tap, tap, shot pattern so the horse doesn't know when it's getting the needle. The last vet that I had give a shot to my little one just made me angry though. I'm sure it's a perfectly acceptable way, but he took his thumb nail and dug it into my poor baby's neck, which caused her to freak out, which says a lot because it was her tetanus booster, so she had already had her first set of shots, and didn't even blink. But this vet comes along and makes it hurt even more than the actual needle. o_O I was so mad.
