In the past, I have trimmed hooves in other people's herds. This was actually quite a lucrative business for a high school girl, and I think I'd like to give it a go again, except now I have some concerns.... maybe you all can help me? Before, I was trimming anywhere from 15-60 animals at a time. I just bought a new pair of trimmers for each job. Recently, however, I've had people contact me with just a few goats-- 3 or 4. Clearly I will have to figure out someway to sanitize my trimmers OR convince the people to purchase their own. In my herd, I have bleach spray that I use between goats, but I don't know if this is sufficient to use between herds? I also clip animals for show for the 4-H kids around. Obviously I don't charge the 4-Hers, but I have also had people approach me about body or dairy clipping their does. I love clipping so this appeals to me, but I don't know what to charge. My clippers are like my children, so I am concerned about their wellbeing...lol. It costs me $7 to have the blades sharpened on the clippers and $42 for a new set altogether. What would you pay to have someone clip your animals? Trim their hooves? Interested in all opinions, even if you would never hire it out. What would your concerns be?
