Today, my 6-7 month old male goat broke the tip of his horn. I don't know exactly how he broke it. I guess he just rammed something. I did notice yesterday that his horn was really slightly cracked and today it just completely broke off. There was no bleeding. Even with his broken horn, he still like to ram things. I was afraid I'll have a bigger problem if he breaks the bone that is showing and bleeding occurs so I put a tennis ball to prevent his bone from breaking. I put a bandage wrap around the tennis ball and taped the wrap around the bottom of his horn so it won't come off. I don't really know what to do or what will happen to his horn. Am I suppose to wrap his horn with bandage wrap or is it okay to leave on the tennis ball? Will it grow back? If so, how long does it normally take? I appreciate your help.
