    Would anyone be willing to save their goat's beards for me when they trim them? I am wanting to make some crafts out of it, and I won't have enough. Buck's beards are ok as well. I don't mind the smell, and I will shampoo it anyway.

    Thanks in advance...

    I will try to remember. I usually clip beards when I trim udders for kidding which will be mostly Feb & March for me. Should I just throw them in a ziplock bag?

    Thank Karen, yes, Ziplock bag is fine. Whethers, and buck's are the best though, they are course enough for most of te stuff I want to use it for. You know horse-hair pottery? Well, I'm going to do goat hair pottery. LOL But I need to save up quite a bit of it first.

    since I didn't know what it was I googled it.... very VERY COOL!
    Thought I'd share what I found....

    "Horsehair pottery is a Native American art form that dates back years. As its name implies, it is made using hair from the tail and mane of a horse. It's said that a pueblo potter whose long hair blew against a piece of pottery she was removing from a hot kiln, stuck to the piece, first made horsehair pottery. The result was so interesting that she duplicated it with hair from a horse's tail."
