    Ok here are the pictures of Prancer. As you can see no horns. Can you tell from the picture is he has been disbuded or if he is polled?
    Thanks for the help everyone.

    Hmmm, looks polled to me with the swirls.

    But I've never had a dehorned one. Mine are either horned or polled.

    Cute little fella

    Thanks all,
    So I guess he will not be getting horns, As he is either been disbuded or is polled. Is there any way to tell for sure?
    He really likes his house my brother in law found it someone was getting rid of it. But it makes a really nice little goat house. Lots of air flow witch is good in the florida heat and good protection from the rain.
    Mom named as he is really her goat. and he does prance a lot.

    Love your goat. Our goats have a Little Tykes play house in their pen. We covered it with a tarp and used it for their shelter last summer until the goat barn was finished. We left it in the pen because they love to sit or stand on the roof(Our goats are pygmy/alpine mixes -didn't realize the Alpine until they got too tall)

    Make sure he can't jump on the roof and over the deck railing. We have to keep our play house in the middle of the pen.

    if he was going to get horns you would see them growing in about as big as the first joint on your thumb by now, so yes he is eather naturally polled or has been dehorned

    I say polled-w/polled you have the "bumps"-w/disbudded you would have depressed areas,w/a ridge above them-enjoy him :)

    The one big swirl on the head indicated polled. Typically there are two small swirls where the horns would be coming through.
