Our first show is in less than 2 weeks. We have 3 weathers we started trying to lead today. All 3 are stubborn as can be. They jump, plant there feet, lay down and roll over. They do everything but walk. Well its very hot out and I dont wont to over work them so if any one has some tips please share. Also I have tried treats but I have found nothing they like

I have found tying them up really helps them learn to lead. They figure out on their own that when their is pressure on their neck, if they move forward it goes away.

When you tie them up, be sure to keep an eye on them. Goats are very good at getting tangled up.

I agree ^^.

With the show being that close I would definitely be working with them in the morning and at night! The earlier in the morning the better because it's cooler, and the later at night the better for the same reason.
