I was giving my horses 5-way vaccine and rabies shots (rabies for the cat and dog, too) today when my youngest horse, a spirited filly fidgeted and bumped my elbow just as I was taking the needle guard off. The trajectory was just right -- I injected the knuckle of my left middle finger with horse Vaccine. Well, I guess I won't come down with Eastern/Western/Venezuela encephalitis, tetanus, or West Nile anytme soon!:)

So, if I start raving about how good the grass is at my place, y'all will know why! :eek:

Sheesh! You guys show no mercy! :)

Dean, the top of the knuckle had a bump about the size of a pea. It was aichy and today is still a little red and sore to the touch. The syringes come pre-loaded with vaccine and they are not graduated with the dosage amount -- ya just inject the whole syringe (preferably into a freakin' HORSE! :eek:). I'm guessing the total loaded dose is about 3 mls. for full-grown horses and I'm guestimating I got about 1/8 ml. in my knuckle.

At least I didn't poke myself with the rabies syringe.

Kind of interesting -- for whatever reason -- last night and much of today I was absolutely exhausted, but slowly coming back to normal now. I'm wondering if my body was cranking out the antibodies in a normal vaccine response. All joking aside, I'd be curious to know if I really will have some protection from any human encephalitis diseases or West Nile. :dunno:

Well, I see some oats in my trough, so i guess I'd better go. Dinner time. :lolsmash::lolsmash::lolsmash:

PS......Maybe at midnight on the next full moon I will turn into a fiery-eyed rampaging horse, terrorizing the villagers?:D There is a movie in the making here , folks.
