Well as most of you know I am planning on rebuilding my herd this Spring! I am VERY excited and am hoping to make some deposits on a few kids in February/March. Which brings me to my current delima... Whether to go with horns or no horns?? All of my previous herd were horned except for 3, but this time I will have some registered goats in the mix as well. Scurs really scare me! I have NEVER disbudded or wached someone disbud a goat before... and I have seen some real botch jobs before! So #1 I am scared to disbud kids myself AND I don't know which farms do a good job at disbudding and which ones don't (when looking at who to purchase from). We are going to have about 15 acres fenced for the goats to start off with, and about 4 separate pastures (Buck pen; Open Does pen; bred Does, Does with kids, and Doelings to young to be bred pen; extra pen for rotation or whatever we need it for). We have a total of 50 acres and will be fencing the rest of it in for goats as we go along. So being cramped or anything isn't an issue. IF we did go the horned route, I could always take the kids to the vet to get them disbudded if someone wanted a kid without horns... but I have never seen the goats they have disbudded so I don't know how good of a job they do. ANY opinions would be GREALY appreciated!! What I really need is your opinions on the matter and why you feel that way, PLEASE! I have also added a poll on here, so if you don't mind please vote as well. Thank you in advance for your advice! This decision has really been weighing on my mind!
