We had not been brave enough when we tried burning horn buds, so we used the elastrator bands on what grew back. Most of them are doing just fine, but my LaMancha doeling knocked her head into a fence this morning and pressed the almost-loose elastrated horns sideways. She screamed and ran for the goat shed. I finally managed to catch her and restrain her on the milk stand. It was awful. Had to hobble her, tie her head, and secure her front feet, and she was screaming bloody murder with blood dripping down the side of her head. Using scissors, I clipped off the remaining skin that held the horn dangling from her head. More screaming. Luckily, I had banamine and tetanus shots available. I sprayed it with Furall and crunched up a stiptic pencil end and got it to stop bleeding. I'm going to have to hire someone to do disbudding. It is not something I can do successfully - either method.
