I am getting a new buck pretty soon. He was born April 17, 2007 He is really nice looking (and friendly) but he will be housed with our other bucks and he has about 1-2 inch long scurs. I really don't need him injuring anybody, bucks or girls.
When he was a kid they had problems disbudding him, because his horns kept growing back.
If his scurs do become a problem, what is the most humane way to "get rid of" them? And prevent them from coming back?

Thanks!

If it moves you can wiggle it until it comes off or you can cut it off with a pair of hoof trimmers. Some bleed a little bit. I usually have someone hold the animal down and burn it with the iron a little after its off. Normally they dont come back.
