Syringe Fed Kid Goats
The mom had 4 kids and not enough milk for all so this little one was fed by hand from the very first day, he was the runt and not able to get to the mom's milk.
The top photo shows the kid being fed milk with a large plastic syringe. Baby goats need to have their mom's rich milk (colostrum) during the first 12-24 hours of life. Colostrum is necessary so their little bodies can set up the defense mechanisms to fight diseases and to kick start their delicate digestive system.
