Very true and sadly we had to have them dehorned before going to the works. But before that time they are very much part of 'being Highlander'!

thanks - we had this problem in the past... yes i was trying to locate borrow/leasing a portable crush/headbale however, also no joy...

i will i think get the vet to sedate them, as suggested by a few, and then have it done..

txs, rodd

the race isn't too wide - can have two side by side. I did have something pressing up behind them, and a bar across the top, however one of the two is a little more fisky, and yip got a few kicks to the shins...

job for the vet me thinks...

Hi, i haven't had a problem with the horns of any of our Highland cattle, they are quiet, and yes they like to push away. however like all animals you need to be patient, quiet, and relaxed with them - but still firm and aware. The horns on the Highland are a defining feature, and we dont send ours to the works so wouldn't dream of it...
