So Annie delivered two little boys on December the 9th 2020. About a week later we went to get them disbudded by a friend. Well they are about 6 1/2 weeks old now which means that it's been 5 1/2 half weeks since we got them disbudded. As you know usually they should come out in about 2 or so weeks right? Well for each of them it seems as if only one has come out. WHATS GOING ON??

It looks like the black one’s horn is coming out but not the gray one

This looks like a scur:

I can't tell on the black goat. Do you feel any horn-like tissue coming up?

If the scur wiggles and is < 1" you can usually pop it off with some pliers. If it doesn't wiggle then it will need to be redone.

So I checked to see if the gray ones little nub would move... it didn’t. So does he have a scur? If so that what can I do about it.
