Low Tech mare milker

On the advice of our vet daughter,Martha, we modified a 60cc dosing syringe to function as a mare milker. Simply cut the pointed end off the syringe and reverse the plunger.
Put the flanged end over the mares teat and pull back on the plunger. The milk flows into the syringe.

Use that beer bottle you emptied while waiting for the mare to foal with a lamb's nipple to feed the foal that critical first milk.
