    How do you clip bucks for show? Is it the same as does (all over body clip w/ tuft on end of tail?).

    Do you leave the beard or not?

    Thanks!

    Whitney,
    It is an all over body clip leaving the tail like the does, except we leave the head from the poll and jaw line unclipped including the beard.

    Hhhhmmm...I'm not sure on Nubians. But with the Swiss breeds...we leave the beard just like Tim explained.
    I don't even clip beards on baby bucks. I LOVE a long, flowing beard on my Togg, Saanen, and Obie.

    The inside of the ears are shaved, I use surgical blade, the outside is done with a 10.

    Alot of Nubian bucks are shown clean shaven just like does, mostly because alot of bloodlines of Nubians don't grow beards of any consequence. No beards allowed here. Vicki

    Come to think of it....I don't think I've seen that many beards on Nubians. Maybe a tuft, but not the long flowing ones of Swiss breeds.
    LOL...I even teach my bucks to lead by their beards. Wherever that bottom jaw goes, the goat has to go or loose the jaw. :twisted Besides, I don't leave collars on my bucks. Just grab a handful of beard and he's obliged to go with me.
    Yeah, it's SUPER gross during breeding season, but so is a collar that slides up and down that neck that's being...well, you know.

    I was thinking I saw a nubian buck just the other day on a members website with a real long nice beard.
