    We are going to go look at 2 Nigerian Dwarf goats tomorrow morning. After talking with her I found the goats had not been dehorned yet, and she was going to do it before we got there. The goats were born Jan. 2nd, so they are just over 1 month old These are our first goats. Is that too old to do the burning of the horns? Will we have problems with spurs growing?
