    So I gotta get the goats to the fair on Wednesday. The goat show is on Thursday. Today is Sunday. I was wondering how long before the fair should I shave my goatlings.
    I was thinking perhaps Tuesday...
    Both the doelings I'm brining are light colored, so I know I shouldn't wait too long before the fair to shave them. What do you think? Should I shave them Tuesday or sooner?
    Thanks a bunch. :greengrin:

    I would say the sooner the better, that way if you make any mistakes, they'll grow back in in a couple days. :)

    I like to clip 4 to 5 days before a show using a fine blade. Shelly
