    Since Sasha has now gotten her selk stuck, head through panel and horns not letting her get it back through...can the person who had the pictures of the PVC pipe taped to the horns please post it again?

    Thanks!

    I got both!

    I just need to see where on the horns it was taped as I can't remember.

    From 2 inches above the head to halfways up the front of the horns will be good, this way they can't get their head through more than that and it's not so close to the tips that they can pull it off.

    So, it goes on the front not the back of the horns?

    yes/ much easier to try and manuever to tape it on the front than it is the back.

    I tape my goats on the front of the horns. I really do not know why other then it is easier for me.
