Fitting A Sheep For Show Day
You want your lamb to look its very best on show day. Chad Charmasson gives an overview of the sheep grooming supplies and techniques he uses to get them there.
Sheep grooming supplies you’ll need for this fitting process include Sheep & Goat Whitening Powder, liquid ProCharge, liquid ProPolish, a hand pump sprayer and a synthetic brush. First, apply the whitening powder to give a consistently white, smooth appearance to your lamb’s hide. Make sure the whitening powder has dried before moving onto the next step, which involves applying a mixture of ProCharge and ProPolish to make sheep feel fresher in the show ring. Mix the two products in a hand pump sprayer, and spray the mixture on your lamb’s body. Use a gentle, synthetic brush to work it into the hide.
