I have a 2 year old Wether with beautiful horns, and I really want to keep them, but my kids are afraid of them, and he pushes my older dehorned goats around with them something fierce, so i think they need to go. I have heard that you can put the castrator bands at the base of the horns, and then they will fall off after a couple weeks. Has any one had sucess doing this? how likely is it that he will grow unsightly scurs doing it this way rather than having the vet dehorn him? And just for curiosity, if I ever had a goat with really bad scurs, could i use the same method to to remove them? up to what age can I do this on a goat?
