I've never had the privilage of showing any of my goats, but do have a question on clipping....do ya'll sculpt the face area to highlight? or just clip it? With our horses we'd sculpt the facial highlights (without clipping off the eyelashes), so just curious.

Just clip the face.  And we do leave the eylashes.  Most breeders don't.

I leave the eyelashes as well. But you clip the rest of their face and every other hair on their bodies except the tip of their tail.

Now see, I wouldn't be able to control myself, I'd have to flip the clippers over adn sculpt into a beautifully highlighted face.  Grin

A goat would be a breeze! Especially after having to body clip 3-6 month old foals for the showring. That's a jump and clip session all in itself, so figure goats would be abotu the same.

Watch out my girls, I think I'm gonna try clippin ya'll when the weather warms up.

A milk stand and a dish of grain helps immensely with the "jumping" when clipping!!

Milk stand, grain, horse.  ???  Grin Wink I could see that!  Grin Thanks for the Idea Sally! dont' think hubby will appreciate it when I inform him he has to build a foal size milk stand (tried just the grain before, never worked, maybe the milkstand is what I missed?  Wink )

JUST KIDDIN YA! but the mental image is funny you have to admit.

my milk stand is metal
it has a railing on one side and bars going down to the platform every few inches
the other side is almost the same but there are 4 bars missing that give me enough room to milk
does that make sense?
anyway
there is no way i could do a proper clip on the stand
i wouldn't be able to reach everywhere
so what should i do

A clipping tip, which we have learned from others.  If our goat is very steep hipped, you leave all or most of the hair there to make it seem less steep.  Of course it wouldnt fool a judge, but it helps in a visual inspection from the judge.

Usually the first thing a judge looks at is the front.  Im about to simulate a judge

"Oh that doe has a nice front, walks wide and has big bones, uh oh, steep hipped, yepp she aint gonna be first, but look at that butt!  Shes definitly at the top, but not in my first place!"

We have a doe.  Shes huge, powerful, long, but she has a slight steep hip.  In a USBGA show she got a 3rd out of 4.  The judge said if her hip was better, she would have gone better. But otherwise a beautiful doe.
