    I was looking at the plans for a stanchion on the fiascofarm website. Would this one work for horned goats and disbudded ones? I have both, will one stand work or do I need one for each?

    I love my stand. Just built it last february. Had a doe bloated last night, and I don't know what I would have done without it. SO conveniant. Would you like to see mine in action, too? lol heres some pics :
    Here's my two bucks in the stand. As you can see, they are both horned. The white buck's horns will spiral up and outward, but I don't think it will ever be that much of a problem, as the stand's head-holder piece opens VERY wide.
