You will wash and shampoo lamb and clip the lamb when it is wet. Not dripping wet but damp after washing. If the lamb dries out wet them down again. this should be done the day before showing. Do not clip the leggs under the knee joints. you want that natural but trimmed nice like show cattle. Of course no glue.

I went on sullivan website and they no longer carry the stablemate clipper. They said the star clipper is what you want to get.
also here is a good pre show and show day drench--
once you make it keep in refrigerator or on ice,
2 bottles amino acid concentrate (sullivans supply)
60cc dyne (purchase at sullivans)
120cc Propolene Glycol (sullivan supply)
2pkg. Blue ribbon Merricks calf electrolyte (Merricks 1-800-637-7425)
1/2 pkg. NRG Plus (sullivan supply)
mix together in gallon jug
Fill the rest of the gallon up with water
Use this 2 weeks prior to each show
Day 1-3 one 60cc drench once a day
Day 4-5 one 60cc drench twice a day
Day 6-12 two 60cc drench twice a day
Day 13-14 four 60cc drench three times a day
day of show - Four 60cc drench in the morning
if you show later in the day you will want to drench again
This will keep the lamb hydrated and fresh the entire show.

Check Sullivans used and buy a set of the old school Oster hair heads. They're a little heavy but you could mow the yard with them. We also have a set of the newer 4000's with the interchangable heads and they're nice too.
