    I did one roo with the hot potatoe and it worked pretty well actually, it did bleed some tho so I disinfected and put vetwrap on it also kept him in a small cage for a couple of hours to give it a chance to stop bleeding. Alls well and I've kept them to make earings or whatever with them. [​IMG]

    well,, i got an emergency oilfield call,, was out alot,, then its suppose to rain hard all weekend, so i used a dremil, and cut an inch off, cause it was late, and with cold and rain i didnt want a chance for it to get "yucky" on him,,, so i figured the dremil was a fast, easy,and safer on the bleeding,, since it was an hour before dark,, there was no bleeding, and he just laid there in my jacket while i cut away,, almost like he LOVED it hehe ,, i figure after all this rain,, i'll cut them even shorter.
    just wanna thank you all !

    I'm glad it went well. He is probably glad not to have them stabbing him when he sits!
