Now that I can get all up close and personal with Glory Bee (seriously, does she not look thrilled that I’m touching her?), I discovered that she’s not just a devil….
….but that when I pushed her hair aside….
….she’s a horny devil.
She’s enough trouble without horns, too.
I’ve got some dehorning paste. I’m desperately seeking advice from anyone who has used this stuff. It says to not let the calf around other animals for six hours, and not to let them nurse. I’m thinking to put it on her in the evening. I milk her before dark, around 6ish, then don’t milk in the morning till around 8 a.m., so that’s over a 12-hour time span. I just want to be sure it won’t cause any harm to BP when she nurses the next morning. Help?
