Came home tonight to find one of my little does has a lose horn. Looks like the blood is clotted around it and not bleeding. I put her in her own pen with food and water. What can I do for the horn? Will it grow back?

horns should be connected to the skull...nice and tight, they become part of the skull..If she was disbudded thenthat will weaken the base and can cause loose unattached horns...
If she was never disbudded then she may have a mineral defiancy ..is the horn peeling?

be sure she has access to quality loose minerals...good feed and hay...If you are copper and/or selenium deficiant...supplement with copper bolus and selenium vit e gel or BoSe...
