    How big are the
    I have a little buckling that we tried to use dehorning paste on when he was little but it didn't work, so he is 3 months old now and we decided banding them was the way to go.

    our girl is almost two weeks old. Is it to late to dehorn her ourselves with a iron?

    2 weeks shouldn't be too late. I've done it up to almost 4 weeks. Just make sure you pop the horn cap off then cauterize the buds.

    I'll do it tomorrow. Do you think it will grow to much in one day?

    No not at all.....you'll be good with one day.....just be sure when you do it peel the "button" off and flatten it with your iron....I always rotate burn then ice.....I'm paranoid about frying their brain :(
