I have a rhinehart x50 dehorner. (I think it is the x50, anyways...it is the big one) I have had it for 20 years. I was out of goats for many years, and so cannot remember this; there is a switch in the middle... has a D on one side, and an S on the other. It also has the extra tip for kids. I am hoping that someone can tell me what those settings mean. Last year, it was set on the S position, (as I had not even noticed the switch, and didn't EVER remember seeing it... :rofl. I guess I am getting old~) All kids but one, needed disbudding twice last year. ugh. We found the switch this year, and set it to the D position, and it seems to be working better. It glows red, when good and hot in the D position... I am assuming that it is running hotter when in the D position. I would appreciate any help. Thank you! Oh, and up to 8 kids now.. 6 bucks and 2 does, with more (does I hope) due on Thursday! :biggrin Thanks in advance!
