Does anyone have experience using an elastrator to de-horn? we were going to trade our young bucklings/soon-to-be-wethers to someone who has now changed their minds. We did not disbud them because they wanted them to have horns, and now that it looks as though we are keeping them. I DO NOT want horns on them and was wondering if someone has de-horned young bucklings 8 weeks old? We are having them banded later this week to castrate both.
What should we do? Both of their horns are about 2"-3" long now. I cab attach photos if needed. They are 100% alpine.

I checked out a couple of websites and it seems like it shouldn't be a problem for us. looks like its not too difficult and we'll have our friends and "experts" help us out. Thanks again!
