Like when is the earliest. Right now it's in the 50's/60's. When it warms up to the 70's can I clip them?

Maybe with a hair guard?

I wait until the end of April/first part of May here - but I don't have any spring shows. I just use a #10 blade. I'm sure a longer blade would mean an earlier clip. Do you have an early show or are you just in a hurry to see what's under all that hair this year? :cool: I love a clipped goatie!

Well could I clip them to about 3 inches of hair? Highs are in the mid 50's and lows are just above freezing.

I wouldn't clip them tell the temp stay above 40 to 50 degrees at night. It's not worth the risk of pneumonia just to see what they look like. If you have coats and a barn you could do it sooner or give them a thick bed of straw to sleep in. Shelly

They have an 8x12 barn, and lots of composting poop with straw on top.

The little stinkers are probably warmer than me most of the time. :lol:
