    I had been fighting off Coccidia in one of my young bucks. Thankfully it cleared but now he has a bit of dried poop stuck on the back of his legs and tail. I was debating bringing him inside and giving him a warm bath and using a soft soap to try to get it off. Or am I better off trimming it off?
    Just looking for advice on best way to clean him. The poop is extremely hard at this point. I was able to clean most of it off but some of it is still stuck on him.

    If you can leave him in the house to dry you could. Or just get some wet soapy water on his bum and scrub it off.

    A clipper is fine too.

    Really your choice whatever is easiest.

    I had a doe with a pretty messy tush. I trimmed off hair with poo clumps off her tail and with a curry comb, I comb daily until all is clean.

    Hair goats scratch and cut.
