One more post and I'm done for today :) it's about 50 degrees where I'm at. We need to give our does a bath for their show this Saturday. So is it too cold for that? What's the coldest it can get before it's too cold for a bath? I have a livestock blower with the heat option and of course plenty of towels. What would y'all suggest?

Having just done this recently for a sick doeling, this is what I did.
First I waited until it was 50 degrees and then dried here with a hair dryer, which took almost a half hour to do properly. I found out the second time if you run your hand against the hair while blow drying it goes faster. Finally to be on the safe side since she was weak, she spent the night in a stall with a heat lamp. Hope that helps.
