    We have a rescue goat that came to us disbudded improperly and his horn grew into a spiral shape. He finally got it caught on something and basically pulled the outer horn off leaving the bone exposed and attached to his head. It was bleeding quite a bit but has since stopped. We applied blood...

    Is this normal or a mineral deficiency........or are they chewing on each others horns? They are twin brother.
  3. Bucks
    We have a three year old Nigerian Dwarf buck who was disbudded when he was young. We were taking him to fair because his mother was going and he was too young to be away. As it happens most of the time with our bucks, the horns grew back. Only now they are slightly messed up. They go out and...

    We disbudded this buckling when he was four days old. (He and his brothers were actually born with relatively prominent horn buds that could've been disbudded earlier, but we wanted to wait until they were at least a few days old.) He is now just over four weeks old. His scabs have popped off...

    I'm very new to owning goats, I've been researching for a year and finally made the leap two weeks ago. One of the goats I purchased is a Lamancha that is 8 weeks old. When I bought her I was told she had been disbudded. Now I did notice she had a little horn on the left side, probably about...

    Not sure how I didn't notice until today, but went to pet my doe on head tonight, and she appears to be growing horns???? There are bald spots on the top of the "horns" ? They look like they are just erupting? She will be two in may. Never had this before. She has been doing a lot of had...

    Today, my 6-7 month old male goat broke the tip of his horn. I don't know exactly how he broke it. I guess he just rammed something. I did notice yesterday that his horn was really slightly cracked and today it just completely broke off. There was no bleeding. Even with his broken horn, he still...
