I have a doe, waiting to kid, out in the barn. I noticed she didn't go to the feed a week or so ago. I went over and grabbed her by the horn like I normally would. She screamed and ran away frantically. OK, that isn't like her. I hurt her somehow. So, husband and I examine her and realize that her horn is loose from her head and is oozing. Yuck!! I can't believe I grabbed it!! Poor girl. No wonder she screamed!! My husband about died....he doesn't have a strong stomach. I have no idea if she got stuck in the fence, was fighting or what. Regardless of what caused it, she now has a loose horn that is pushed into an abnormal position. I had to give her Probios and Banamine for a few days plus removed her from the other goats to prevent any head butting. My question to you is this.....Have you ever had this happen to one of your goats? Do you think she'll lose the horn eventually? It looks kind of floppy but is still well attached to her head. She's ready to kid now and could be kidding as we speak. Poor thing. I hate that she has to go through that on top of having babies.
