Poor little thing. She just cried all afternoon. I was going to let her keep her horns because I think being bottle/human raised she may not be as aggressive as some of the other boer girls will be, but I decided if she had to go in with the dairy babies that I didn't want her using those horns on them, so I did it. I gave her some banamine, but she still cried and ground her teeth. Today she was LOTS better. I hope I did a good job of disbudding. I have not waited this long to disbud one and her little buds were getting long enough the ends was just about to pop through the skin. I would say 1/2 inch maybe. I burned and used a knife to pop off the horn bud and burned sideways and then around again. It took all the fortitude I could muster to do it to this little thing. Just nerve wracking. By the way her leg is broken. I've had it in a toilette paper cast ( rolled the toilette paper cardboard in on itself some to make it tighter to her leg and vet wrapped it up. I've changed it out twice and it is healing, but has a slight inward turn to it. She still hops and only uses it if absolutely necessary. How long do you think I should keep it taped up? 6 weeks?
