Default Rhinehart Electric Dehorner Pygmy Goat Dehorner (1/4" inner Diam.)

I found this dehorner at jeffers http://www.jefferslivestock.com/ssc/product.asp?CID=2&mscssid=DQ8WQJ3L3LHC8GDT8VSMCT0K N9E03B91&pf_id=0029537 I seems to make sense, a smaller tip for small goats. Has any one used this? I need the input of experience and wisdom before I purchase!

Thanks!

A friend of mine uses my X50 to burn her Nigerians and she uses the regular tip that I use to burn my Nubians.. she prefers the larger tip to the smaller one because she says the other is too small.

We have the small tip and the large tip. For Pygmy's in the past and now the Pygoras I found that we go by feel and age. The does when done early can have the small tip and if done a bit later used th big tip. We always ended up using the big tip on the bucklings/wethers. They just seem to have a bigger horn base.
Hope that helps.

Pam
