What can I do about scurs on my pet goat (goats general)greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
My goat had her horns surgically removed back in Sept. Now I'm noticing that one of the horns is growing back. Is there anything that I can do about this? Does the banding that has been discussed before work on scurs? Suggestions please!

Sometimes the scurs will just break off, or they can be broken off by you. Others are heftier and more solid. When you grab the scur does it wiggle? Try to find out how strong and securely attached it is. I guess you could band it, I have done this with the round scurs, that were like small horns. Or you can nip the end off little by little, every week or so. If the scurs wiggle she will likely break them off fighting.
