Re: Going to my first show the 14th of June!

Same here! Good luck clipping Gigi, I know its going to be fun clipping Bambi. I was thinking I should do it now so any rough spots/mistakes grow in. :oops: My friend that I got their mom from it going to be there, so she can help me out a bit.

Any suggestions? What do I need? I am going to a show in NH this weekend so i can see how things work before I go. Oh and Bambi dosen't really have a beard so should I shave it clean? Anyone have any pics of how I should shave a 4 month old little buck?

Heres a pic of him!

Bambi's looking at you so innocently and trusting- little does he know what's coming for him. lol
Good luck with the show- I hope you have success and more importantly, lots of fun.

Bring lots of stuff to disinfect the stalls.

Re: Going to my first show the 14th of June!

lol, I don't think he will be too bad. He is very laid back about everything. Partly why I want to take him to my first show.

It's going to be a "trailer" show. So no pens unless you bring your own. Is a big dog crate ok for him?

Re: Going to my first show the 14th of June!

I was clipping my little 3 month old buck the other day and as a was shaving his chin I totally forgot to save a beard, but I don't mind. It will grow anyways. So you can decide what you want to do, I would probably leave some fur there though.

Here is a photo of him

Re: Going to my first show the 14th of June!

Thanks! How do you make it so their head doesn't look like a big fuzz ball without shaving the beard fuzz and top of the head fuzz? I can't seem to figure that out. Most of my guys are looking a bit weird with fuzzy heads around here. It's been so hot I wanted them to be able to cool off.... so they are cool, but they look weird. :slapfloor:

Re: Going to my first show the 14th of June!

I don't leave the stuff on the top of their head, I could never figure out how to shave it, and I prefer them without it. But the beard is just a personal preference of how you like to clip it. I know when I was at nationals and saw Tiger L he had a chopped of beard, they said it was getting into the water buckets too much :ROFL:

my show is a trailer show too. I was just going to bring a dog crate for the back of my truck. I dont think Angie will mind.

For the one day show that I went to without pens I just put my three pygmies in two dog crate L and XL in the back of the truck. I saw lots of other people who didn't have stock trailers doing that also.

Re: Going to my first show the 14th of June!

Angie should be good with crates after 8 hours in one. lol And with it in the back of your truck Stacey the screaming wont be so loud! I hope Bambi is quiet.

Whats really funny is when you pull over at a rest stop and they start screaming and attracting attention! :slapfloor:

she was really quiet on the way to Teri's and back today.

I don't know if my truck will be able to be used or not. I have to get 3 of its tires fixed :hair: All the stems are broken :shrug:
