Fiskar Brand scissors (Far
Found at many office supply stores. This is the
most economical way to go for a small herd. The
shape of the handles make it easier and less tiring for your
hands when taking fleece off a few goats. These
scissors are also great for cutting individual locks of
fiber to be used for craft projects such as doll hair or
Oster Brand Golden A5 trimmers (2nd
Found in the horse section of many feed
stores. I used to used this before I owned the Shear
Master electric shearers. It is slower than the
bigger shearers but is great for smaller flocks. Less
likely to accidentally cut a wiggly animal.
Shear Master Brand Electric Shearer (3rd
with 10 teeth "Sheep Comb"
I found the wider spaces between the teeth of the comb
is especially good for the Type A Pygoras as their fiber is
a thicker diameter than the type B and Cs. Some type A
Pygoras also have more grease in there fiber and I find the
cutter and blades don't "gum" up as quickly as
with the "goat" comb.

with 20 teeth "goat" comb
I like this for my for my Type B and C Pygoras. I find
that it cuts through finer fleeces with less "short
fuzzy" cuts. I also found I'm less likely
to accidently cut a wiggly goat with this blade.
