Title: Help please!!!
Post by: Cowgirl94 on February 25, 2013, 11:04:36 PM
I am doing a 4-H Demonstration on clipping and using that new chart Stierwalt made as a reference.... I planned on going over materials needs and all that stuff but is there any ideas on how I could teach the kids how to clip hands on without an animal? any creative ideas out there?!

if you could find a large enough plastic model or toy of a cow maybe see if you could find some type of hair on animal hide or fur that can be spray adhesives on. I know they make some spray adhesives that are designed to be pulled back apart. Don't know what it would clip like but the cheapest way would probably be go to a fabric store and search for some shaggy fabric that has a similar feel and length to cattle hair. Never tried any of it but you said be creative. Never priced them but I know my old Ag shop had a full sized fiberglass cow mounted on wheels to move around the class room.
