Horn Wire Saw
Disbudding is always our first choice. However, there are situations when it becomes necessary to trim the horns of a goat. If their horns have become dangerously long where they could get caught in a fence or accidently hurt a care giver, you could use this saw to remove the ends of the horn. There is a living core inside the horn that when cut too short, can cause severe bleeding. To avoid cutting too short, cut in small increments. Keep Blood Stopper (#17C) on hand just in case. (40’ of 17 mm wire and two SS saw handles)

Horn Tip Tape
This amazing tape can be wrapped around those sharp tips of the horns to form a lightweight ball that will not effect the curve of the horn. Plus, it will eliminate the danger those sharp horn tips present to other goats and people. (Not Electrical Tape!)
