My first fair is in 1 month. My goats are trained to
Lead but I have problems keeping them still when standing them. Any suggestions?

It takes time. With my girl I would stop, set up, and immediately walk again. Then I would stop, set up, count to two, then move off. Then slowly build up time. You can easily have to stand in line for 10 minutes in a large class.

If shes impatient in general, it may help to tie her up to a fence or put her on a stand. This again you should start out slowly. Once she stands tied still, let her go. Gradually increase the time shes tied up. They'll learn to be patient that way.

give her treats for good behavior, goats are very food motivated.
That's the problem with mine I give them treats when walking them so then when I go to setup they move there back ends to get their heads towards my pocket or they chew on my hands or shirt! Ugh it's so annoying!
