You want to do it when there is a slight nub...We disbud when the nubs are the size of my pinky knuckle lol..seems to work for us. you dont want the horn to be through the skin...although you can still disbud you will most likely end up with scurs..our routine is to shave the head and give a tetanus antitoxin shot...and right after the disbudding we spritz they burns with apple cider vinegar...it stops the pain instantly..my daughter says its a miracle lol..Bucks tend to need to be done much sooner than the does..

imo..too much can go wrong with paste...Ive read stories of it getting in to the eye and such...the iron is fast and over ...once done they are back playing like nothing...some (usually bucks lol) can be more dramatic...but most do very well..
