    Okay, both of my bucks have scurs and I would love to not have to deal with them as often as I do since they do grow towards their heads. I heard that some people band them using the green castration bands. Does anyone have any experience with this?

    My 1 year old nigerian dwarf goat, Anny, has 2 what I thought were scurs. When I was doing more research on them, I learned that if the base of the scur is wide and does not move, or moves the skull too, it is a horn. We checked that with Anny and it turns out she has 1 horn and 1 scur. The horn...

    I have a five year old Oberhasli doe that I acquired a few months ago. We have little history on her. I am in the process of registering her with IDGR, but needed to know if she was polled or horned. It looks like one side is flat and the other side has a little bump like a "horn bud". The...
