    Type of bander??

    I've been researching banders, but want to make sure I get the right tool. Are the ones they use on horns, the exact same as the ones for castrating? My supply places that I deal with, don't show that they even carry banding equipment, or maybe they're called something differently.

    You can just buy the one with blue handles at TSC along with the green bands.

    I bought a Nubian doeling who ended up with horns like that after supposedly being disbudded. My vet sedated her and then cut them with horse hoof nippers. Then he burned them with the disbudding iron. It left a couple of dime sized holed, but I had no issues with keeping them clean or with healing. It wasn't pretty, but it was done and over with in a short time besides the healing.
