I dehorned yesterday and this morning I decided to put blue kote and when I was spaying it he moved and got a little in his eye. I was around and tried to wash the eye out with warm water. What should I do .
So here is my dilemma: My friend has this incredibly sweet Boer doeling which will be eight weeks old on the 20th. My friend tried to disbud this kid with acid (which didn't work) and so now this goat has little horns poking through. I plan to bring this goat to my place in a week or two, but...
I'm looking to buy a dehorner for my Nigerian Dwarf kids.
Usually I take them to the vet, but I'm thinking it might pay for itself soon and might be a good investment.

He also is fully horned, which concerns me not because of the...
I recently purchased 2 pygmy kids. 1 is an 8 weeks old and the other is a 10 week old. Although the 10 week old is smaller than the 8 week old. They are both wethers and were banded the day I brought them home. I am still very new to goat raising as I've only have had 2 others, 1 is polled and...
