    I can't really find any pictures of what the kinder goats horns look like. I ask out of curiosity and to aid in my disbud or not debate. If you could have any of bucks too that would be helpful.

    Yes, When I just do like a google search, I can't find many definitive pictures of what their horns look like. I tried looking at breeder websites since they often have good pictures, but all of them that I looked at disbud. Which makes me wonder, what do their horns look like really?

    Is there anyone out there (on this forum) with horned kinders?

    Well Kinders are a combo of Nubians and Pygmys so my guess is that the horns could be a combo of both breeds, or could head in one direction or the other.... Both seem to a have a wide horn set to me, that when they get long enough want to flare outward and continue eventually curling.

    Ideas?

    They look similar to the bucks, narrower, slightly less wide base, and they don't seem to want to flare at the tips as much.
