Can You Use Horse Clippers On A Goat?
Okay, so this isn't technically horse related, but seeing as many members of this forum have goats, I hope someone can help me out!
At one of the barns I manage we have a few goats. One of the goats has a lot of trouble with overheating due to her thick coat. Today it was slightly humid but only 73 degrees and she was hyperventilating and had to be brought in and hosed off. I've decided it would be best so shave her but was wondering due to the fact that goat hair is so thick and coarse, can you use horse clippers on them? And if so, can anyone recommend a good brand? I only have small face clippers that wouldn't be able to handle the job. I'll have to buy a pair soon before the summer comes and we're facing 90% humidity and temps in the 100's . . . .
I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.
