So I bought a new trimmer and it arrived yesterday and I already have 3 bald goaties LOL I love it!! They aren't impressed and I'm getting better each goat I trim but some before and after pictures of the girls for you to see. Today I just did Andromeda, Lorraine and Cavatina. I'm so itchy with hair!
First post is BEFORE

I can't imagine clipping a whole cow! Let alone more than one O.O That's a lot of work!

I was having a terrible time getting a rear pic on Jasper, he kept coming to me and this was the best I got before he turned around to come to me again. UGH

Looks good! My kids show breeding Boer goats, and I wish sometimes we could just shave them (but flies/gnats/bugs are so bad that would be the issue!). It's a fitting fiasco lol. There are people who are amazing with clippers and grooming products, and then... there is me lol :)

I hear ya lol! I do that all of the time with at least 1 or 2 out of the bunch. I don't have a place in our little barn to clip, so I have to do it outside. Sometimes when I run out of shade and I'm in the sun - white goats - make it hard to see how accurate I am. Clipping and blending the neckline on Boer goats can be such a pain!
When we were at our fair a little over a week ago I had to clip a doe we pulled out of the pasture, quick clip, and you'd think I was drunk while doing it lol! Needless to say I plan on fixing her hopefully tomorrow or Tues before a show later this week. Most of the ones I clipped a few weeks ago are due to be clipped again, so I'm hoping to teach my 12yo daughter so she can learn how to help clip her goats :)
