First thing I learned when setting up a goat is that you dont' actually pinch. YOu rub them with two fingers along the spine. where they naturally will bend is the spot you want to rub your fingers firmly to make them level out.

Just try it a couple times when just petting them and they aren't as upset with you holding their head and playing with their legs.

Getting them to stand for the picture and in the show ring is just practice on their and your part.

Kids never stand still but it is the adults you expect to stay set up for at least a short period of time. Work them like they are kids and don't expect them to get it the first or even the 4th time. But soon they will learn.

It is just fun and if you do ever decide to show you will be much better at it then I was because you took the time to practice
