does anyone here castrate with a knife? i did my 7 week old buck kid yesterday, and he bled quite a bit, more than i would normally see. but normally i would do them much younger than this. the first side was ok, dripped blood a bit, second side gushed. i scraped the cords not cut them like you are supposed to (i usually do them young enough that they just snap wjen i pull them). anyway i held pressure on it until it slowed down then let him go, he had a few drips for maybe half an hour or so. he seems fine this morning, a bit stiff and sore bt that is to be expected. he is bright and alert and eating and drinking. just wondered if anyone has experienced this before. i know they say that the bigger they get the more chance they can bleed out but ive never seen it until now, but yeah i usually do them at a week or two, not seven.
