OK...So I've never had a polled goat until this year. We leased a polled, blue-eyed buck and bred him to three of my does. The mini LaManchas he sired got the blue eyes. The female mini Munchie developed horn buds and we disbudded her. I expected to disbud her brother, but when we shaved his little head, there were just BARELY any bumps visible. Odd, because in my experience, males usually get bigger buds faster than their sisters. I sold him as is and told the new owner to call me if the "buds" grew ASAP so we could deal with them (assuming she wants to.) I thought 2 of the Nigerians doelings sired by this buck were also polled, but one developed buds, albeit a little later than I'm used to. We were pretty positive the other one was completely polled. Until now. She is 3 and 1/2 weeks old and my daughters have noticed little horn buds. I'm going to check them here in the next hour or so. But, I've never had a polled goat. Do their heads have zero bud presentation? ie. are they flat and smooth? Or do they get little mounds? Should I need to disbud a doeling who's almost a month old????? I'd also like to add that these girls had 2 brothers (yes, quads). They did develop horn buds in the first week, but they were SUPER easy to disbud. faster and cleaner than any burn I've done before. Is that also a result of the polled gene???
