How do people prepare their Mussies before a show? I'm new to the show scene but not Mussies and am looking to learn any tips and tricks people may use.
Thanks in advance

48 hours is plenty of time or follow this advice

you could try and show them all ,

to clean them, try keeping them in a pen with sand on the floor, use a plastic babys bath and change the water everyday, move the bath to a different spot each day to stop it becoming muddy, you will find that that if kept in clean sandy pens they will keep there self clean,


If you use white sand then they will stay clean

You can give them a light bath before you pen them and that way they will be clean and stay clean
