Here at Pastures and Pine, we prefer our goats with horns. This is for personal reasons, relating to the natural state of the animal. It is true, the chances of accidental injury both to ourselves and our goats are increased by allowing our goats to remain horned, but that is a liability we choose take on in deference to the natural state of the animals. We do, however, understand that in order to show an animal, they are required to be hornless- either naturally or via the process of disbudding. Others may only want their goats as pets, but have to take into account the safety of small children who will come into contact with them. To that end, there are two options available. 

Naturally Polled:

In the interest of providing you with hornless goats, we have brought a stunning buck into our herd who is homozygous for polled. What this means, is that he possesses two polled (hornless) genes and produces kids who are polled (hornless) when bred with any doe. A polled kid does not have to be disbudded. 

Disbudding:

Disbudding is a process in which a very young goat kid has its horn buds burned away by a hot iron. It is not a process that we enjoy, but we understand that different goat owners have different needs. Goats that are disbudded will not pass on the hornless trait to their offspring. Genetically, they are still a horned goat. 

Of course, you are always welcome to keep your goatling 'au naturale'. If you prefer your goat with horns, as we do here, we are happy to forego disbudding. A 50% non-refundable deposit and contract are required to secure your horned kid. While we do love a horned goat, that sentiment is not widely spread, and keeping a kid with horns could greatly impact our ability to find them a new home, should you change your mind.
