There are two great sites that you can visit on this. In the "olden days" anyone who even talked about banding horns, was looked at in disgust. We all heard the horror stories of goats bleeding to death if the horn broke before the band was through, tetanus, goats in severe pain etc. Then I visited the two sites, and talked at length one day with one of the gals. Read the sites and really look at the shear numbers of goats these two gals did, all without one incidence. They both do warn about making sure and checking and replacing bands that look loose or break, but neither one had any deaths, any bleeding and with vaccination no tetanus.
