Debudding the kids

kids disbudded Apr 17 (3)

As we have decided to keep the two kids born to Georgina, we have hand them debudded by the vet. In effect, the stub of the horn is burnt off, effectively killing off the horns. The operation is done under an anaesthetic. It was carried out 2 weeks ago and appears to have been a success. There's been no growth on the horns.
