So I will be trimming my goats hooves for the first time. I'm so nervous! Does anyone have any tips for trimming hooves? Thanks

1.) Don't be too afraid to make the first cut. (That is always a big one!)

2.) Cut gently and be watchful of your fingers.

3.) Keep those silly goats still while you clip them!

4.) If you see dark pink, stop clipping. (Don't want them to bleed if avoidable.)

5.) Don't forget the toe, or the heel.

6.) Place the foot down and make sure it sits straight.

7.) If you draw blood, it is not the end of the world!

Have fun!
