Goats are so different than sheep! My stockdog trainer raises Barbados blackbelly sheep, and she castrates the rams older to allow the horns to grow some. Then, after castration she puts castrating bands around the base of the horns. After about a month, the bands constrict the horns off to the point that they drop off. She then uses the horns for the tops of herding crooks. My friend bought wethered kid goats that I guess were Alpine crosses, and they grew full sized horns, although not as thick as the intact bucks' horns. So, even after castration, goats grow horns? Has anyone tried to remove horns from goats with bands? Would they just grow back on wethers? Sheep horns pretty much stop growing at the point of castration.
