Debudding/Dehorning - What method do you use/need to use at what age? Cripes, it seems like everything we recently got has a scur or bud and up until now we never needed to deal with debudding (yes, horses and polled cattle!), so please bare with me as I might not know what I am looking at too. I have a 2 1/2 month old that looks like she wasn't touched, a 4 month old that looks like she was burned on one side, but not the other (I don't know, but that is what it looks like), and a 7 month old with a handful of small scurs. First off, what does an untouched horn bud look like at various ages, so that I know for sure that is what I am dealing with and then how do I deal with them at the ages of these doelings, because I really don't want to wait until they need to be banded, if possible. I'm sorry if this sounds challenged, we are a bit, but more so, we just don't know, never dealt with.
