I did it! :happy: :dance: :happy: I dehorned my kids. :dance: Thank you Kathleen, the kneeling worked great! I had so much control over the little ones (I held for the vet for years and this was so much better) I made sure to let it heat 10 minutes between kids and clipped the heads first (vet told me not to bother but it really helped) I would burn, put ice packs on their little moaning heads, give tetnus shot, a little Wonder Dust and we were done. Did 5 kids, different ages and horn nub lenghts which I touched with the hot iron. We'll see in a month if I did it right. My husband was good (city boy) he helped by holding the legs, cleaning the iron between burns, asking me if I got a copper circle and did I give the shot yet. It upset him when I had to go back. Isn't it amazing that within the hour they act like nothing ever happened?
