I have a small herd of Nigerian Dwarfs, and breed just one doe each year for the milk. My goats have horns and I have never had the kids disbudded until this year. I only have a single doeling this year (that I'm selling) and decided this year I would suck it up and get it done. I took her to the recommended 'disbudder' when she was 22 days old, but they felt it was too early, and to give her hornbuds another 2 weeks. That would mean this Tuesday, so I contacted the woman to arrange a time. Sight unseen, she said we should wait even longer (end of next week). The doeling will be 5 and a half weeks old! I have an interested buyer who wants her disbudded, and I don't want to miss the opportunity. Isn't that too late to disbud?
