    the 1/4" iron is too small. I use the 1/2 inch iron for our miniatures.

    Just use the tip that comes on the Rhinehart X30.... it takes care of the bigger horn buds of bucklings very well. :)

    get the 1/2 inch one -- the other is to tiny.

    I agree. I made that mistake already. There is no way you can disbud with that small iron correctly (at least we couldn't)
