Hey everybody! When should I give Holly her pre-birthing haircut? She's due in approx 27 days. =) I'm so excited and I want to clip her soon because we've had some warmish weather.

But I'm also going to be milking her so that's why I'd be doing part of the belly. :) Should I wash her backside a little bit, so that the clippers don't get clogged? I could take her inside to do that but I don't want to freak her out.

I shave the tail the backs and insides of the rear legs and the udder to just in front of it. Sometimes my does get long hair we call wings on their knees on the fronts of the back legs and i tril that off usually with the hair not against for that. I have seen babies get confused and suck on long hair rather then teats. and if your milking its nice to have a clean cut.
