I have a goat that gets her head caught in the fence every day. She has horns that are about 4 or 5 inches long. I have heard of people banding horns but I have never tried this. Can someone tell me how to do it, how long it will take, and is there any risks involved such as infection, excessive bleeding etc. when the horns fall off?

Well after seeing those pictures, I will NOT be banding mine. I try to breed for polled and those are the ones I keep for my herd. I hate to disbud but I think it is more humane after seeing those pictures. Does anyone know if you can notch the horns up further and then band them to get some of the length off? If her horns were only an inch shorter, they would not be getting caught.
