I have an older wether and a young wether. My problem is the older one is the only one with horns and he his a bully. I understand this is normal pecking order behavior but I'm worried about the little one getting stabbed. Can I put tennis balls on his horns? How would I do this? Is there a better solution?

I don't have horned goats, but you could probably make an 'x' in the tennis balls and squish them down over the horns (gently!) Maybe you could duct tape them dow around the horn? I'm not too sure, so hopefully someone who has experience with horned goats can comment. Best of luck!

U can do the tennis balls but we clip about 2 inches off the top of horn so it's not pointy and then round them w a file :) don't cut to far then u'll have lots of blood!
