Today’s saga was much less dramatic. Good for me, less entertaining for you.
(If you missed out on part I find it here)
After getting the kids started on their lessons ( the human kind, we don’t teach the goat kids math, they have short attention spans), I zoomed into town to return the broken clippers and get some better ones. By “zoomed” I mean it took three hours.
So sometime after lunch and taking care of the baby, I was ready to clip away!
It took us about twenty minutes, but we caught a couple of Pygoras. The only one we couldn’t get ahold of was the first one to get a bad haircut yesterday. Don’t blame her, I wouldn’t return to a salon that did a poor job and didn’t even finish.
My next customers may not have been happy about getting their beautiful locks cut off, but they sure looked a lot better when done than before! I managed to clip 2 goats in half the time it took to do one yesterday!
I was feeling so inspired from the positive out come that I decided to try the big Angora goat, Hanzel. He was a lot harder to maneuver than my wee Pygoras. But once we got him where we wanted him he did alright.
Unfortunately I only managed to cut a small area of his mohair locks because the blade on my clippers were dull.
But overall I am satisfied with the day’s results. There are still two goats with bad haircuts waiting to be fixed but a couple others are all done!
Stay tuned for sharpened clippers and the results of the last two goatee goats!
