I wanted to ask how you deal with the horns on your goats. We have some babies that are due in April, and hubby does not want to dehorn them. He prefers to keep the animals as natural as he can. That, and I showed him a video of someone dehorning a kid. He thought it was barbaric. I was open to the concept either way since I really don't have an opinion on it, so I left the decision up to him. I don't mind leaving the babies horned at all. And yet I wonder... Does it take away from their value if they have horns? Are the harder to sell horned? Are they more dangerous to each other? I have already learned a valuable lesson from 1 of my girls two times over. Once she lifted her head when I was filling her feed bucket and bent over too low. There isn't a doubt in my mind that if I didn't have my glasses on, I would have lost an eye. Instead I walked away with just a severely black eye. The second time was in the "groin", and also around the food (same doe). Delilah is NUTS when it comes to food!!! (both times were accidental, and she didn't mean to do it on purpose) The question I have is, how do I make these things safer, not only for myself but also for my family. Especially my children (they are still small. One is only 9 in the other one is 6). Someone told me to buy tennis balls, cut some holes in them and put them on the tips of horns. Have you ever heard of this? Does anyone else have any better ideas?
