It is time for the girls to be disbudded. I hate doing it, but it is necessary for the safety of everyone on the farm (and the other animals too!) We took them into Dr Peterson yesterday for the cauterization procedure. It was quick and hopefully not too painful for the babies!! I only heard a peep once, and that was when they gave her a shot of pain meds. They will take pain meds for a few days and once their hair grows back and the skin heals, they will only have little nubs where their horns would have grown.
They look a little funny for now:
But they did a good job and they don't seem to be holding it against us!
I am glad it is over.
