Just got a Pygmy buckling - born Aug 13th. He has small horns and is not wethered yet either. He will be a family pet, so would like him to be wethered and dehorn end. I am new to goat ownership and want to get him started right :)
Is it too late to disbud him? I think I will have a vet wether him in a few weeks when it cools down over here (NC)....

From what I have been told, you have to disbud at day 4 or 5. I had one of mine banded at 4 months, but yesterday my vet said she would never recommend anyone to do that.
