    Hello All,
    I recently purchased two does at auction and they put large stickers on their necks with a glue stick. I feel silly in asking but what takes them off?

    Can you cut the hair from under them? If not, maybe googone in very small doses...Be careful they don't lick it. Wash the spot afterwards...

    I started cutting the hair on one but they are so squirmy and it is so close to the skin, I was afraid I was going to cut her. This stuff is like super glue. I was thinking about trying a little Dawn and water in a spray bottle but I know they hate getting wet and getting the Dawn out might be rough. It was my first auction and I didn't think to ask when I was there. :(

    Do you have an electric shaver that you could use on them?

    Lol too bad he doesn't have red hair.

    I agree with you completely! They are horrible. I tried pulling it off but it just won't give. I mean it was down to the skin in some places. Why can't they just use the tag numbers already on their ears? Or can their be duplicates?

    Hello Karen,
    I just wanted to let you know that we shaved the tags off yesterday. It went very well considering that we cut their feet for the first time as well. I made one of the babies bleed (I fell terrible about it). I should have started with them instead of my 150lb hard heads. Thanks again! Oh and my husband volunteered to use his shaver (of course the catch is that he gets a new one LOL, saw that coming!) Take care!
