I'm having a problem with my 6 month old nubian, The lady I got him from said she burned his horns the morning I got him, he was already 4 weeks old . she said they would fall off in a couple weeks, but they never did. I got him to be a companion for my horse, and now my poor horse has scrapes all over , he really likes to butt and push her when she is laying down. I'm afraid he will poke an eye out. So I put some rubber hose over his horns for now but is there anything else I can do? NOw a few questions about horns, Are the horns alive? I know they are at the base. but do they have feelings in the tips? could the horns be cut back and rounded off? Thanks for your time.
