    Good morning all!

    For those of you have banded your goat's horns, how long did it take for the horns to fall off?

    I have two Nigerian Drawrfs, and it seems to be taking a LONG time for the horns to come off. Of course, one of them fell off the fence rail and into the hay feeder, knocking off one of the horns early. So I know it's working, but man, is it taking a long time. We're going on 8 weeks now I believe.

    And they NEVER seemed to be in pain. Only when she knocked the horn off by accident, and even then, she only cried for a minute or two and then seemed fine...It is kinda fun having a unicorn in the herd.
