As some of you know, I have a chemical problem and cannot use pesticides to get rid of these stubborn lice. Ivermectin and Cydectin didn't work. DE didn't work. Couldn't find sulfer anywhere here. Turned out they are biting lice and not sucking lice so they are passed from body contact, not picked up off the ground. (a Deer Buck was hanging around them for a while last year) The powder would get rid of them but I cannot use it. So I had gotten something natual that seemed to be working but then I saw the signs again. I decided to shave everyone. EVERYONE!!! I am going to get them clean. Here are some things I have found about shaving a goat. 1. Old dog clippers do not like goat hair. 2. Newer dog clippers do not like to be dropped on the ground and will let you know by making a weird noise. 3. You cannot imagine you are able to bend in so many ways to keep goat confined and still get at where you are cutting. (bending over for too long makes you lightheaded) 4. A kid will cry the whole time it is being shaved. 5. A kid's cry is three times louder in an empty feed bucket. 6. A kid will keep looking into that feed bucket as if feed will miraculously appear. 7. The lice are not cut in half and instantly die, unfortunately. 8. Every other goat in the barn will take a moment to look through the gate to see what is going on, then act like you are doing something different to them. 9. A kid will fall asleep while it's neck is shaved but scream when you go to another place as if you hadn't been shaving it all along. 10. At the same time you realize the kid has stopped crying, she will also realize and start crying again, looking in that bucket for that hidden grain. It took 4 hours to clip two 40 pound kid goats. This seems long to me. What kind of clippers do any of you use and any hints? Still have 14 more to go. By the way, when I fed, the babies looked great, nice and clean...no bugs.
