    Can someone provide me with some photos and tips on clipping and trimming tails! Especially the tips. Mine always look, well, weird! I can't make them look like I see the show goat tails. :/

    We don't show but like to make the girls look perty around the farm!

    I don't have any pictures handy...but what I do is leave a 1" tuft at the end, cut it off square, and pretty much shave the rest of the tail. I usually leave the hair 1" from the end of the tail...so your total unclipped length is 2".

    Sorry, this is confusing.

    Ah...thanks! Sounds silly, I know, but mine always look droopy towards the bottom side...like I should shave the entire underside of the tail, all the way to the end (under only) and then shape the hair left on top. It keeps sounding confusing. But visualizing it is working.
