i don't know how else to phrase this, but one of our ram lambs got one of his horns caught on something and he almost has torn it off. There has been some bleeding and it is crusting onto his head and ear. my husband tried to cut the horn off with a scalpel so that it would be a clean cut, we could put some betadyne on it, and let it heal for him.
It seemed to bleed, and we stopped cutting. it's torn right at the base of the horn, on his head. My husband is trying to cut it there. I had thought maybe cutting the horn off higher up, away from his head, would just help it not get caught on things and heal on its own.
any ideas of how to handle this? The horn is completely pointing in a different direction than the other horn, so he had a significant tear on his head. poor little guy!
