Just wanted to say that it looks like I'll be needing to tube feed my goose and have been working with casportpony. But your tube feeding pictures have me feeling a whole lot better about the prospect of doing this for the first time. Thank you for posting them for near nervous wrecks like me :D.

You win some and lose some. When at first you don't succeed: try... try... try... try and try again.

glad they are helpful! @casportpony is the best and walked me though the whole process.
