I have been asked how to trim goat hooves. Well here is how I do it. Goats have a outer hoof like a fingernail and they have a soft inner hoof for gripping. If they were living with rocks the rocks would keep the outer hooves rubbed down. But my pasture has no rocks so I have to trim them. They also have a heel part that can grow up.
First put them on a stand with some grain to keep them busy,
If you cut too deep you can hurt them and also cause bleeding the same as cutting your own nails too short. So go easy and just take off a little at a time. If you start to see any pink then stop. Mine like to fight and argue. Usually grain or soft words help. I also will sit next to them and lean my back up against them while I do it. This seems to have a calming effect on my girls.
I usually trim their hooves about every 3 months.
