Problem with dawn dish soap is it takes all the oils out of their hair, leaving a dull appearance. I prefer a high moisture shampoo and conditioner, like pro v for example. Or you can use dawn, just remember to buy a good deep conditioner for after. I like coconut oil rubbed into their skin when they're done. Right before you go in the ring spray final mist on their coat. Depends on if you have dairy or meat goats, but you want to spray places you want to emphasize. In dairy, spray all over and brush in, then go over again on the ribs, rump, shoulder, and neck.
Thanks all!!!I didn't get email in time so I ended up washing them with hald dog shampoo and second time with human shampoo with an oil base. Seemed to work okay but love the oil idea for afterwards - will need to try that next time!
