Saanen's make wonderful milkers, and if not disbudded as kids, have a very nice set of horns. Most owners disbud their animals because of the danger of them getting caught in fencing and hurthing themselves. All my does, except one, have been disbudded. Also, if you are planning on keeping bucks, horned males can be a bit intimidating, and if not raised properly, can cause all sorts of damage with their horns, including taking down any fence that gets between them and the does. Believe me nothing is going to stop a 300 pound buck from getting to his girls.
