I have a buck that is very aggresive, and has cut me once with his horn.  Now I need to trim his hooves and other seasonal care.  How do I get him to be calmer.  Has anyone use show calm or something like it before on goats? Will it help without hurting him?  I would hate to put him down because I cannot bet to him at all, that I bet no one else would want him either.  Any ideas would be gratefully. 

ps it is not only during his rut he is like this, but it is worse now that he is in rut.

get Off the Highway and see what you miss.

I wish I could help you, but I've never had this experience with my goats. I've heard that you can use lemon juice in a squirt gun to gain their respect, they don't usually like water....Hopefully this will help!!!

We used to have a Boer buck that would get quite pushy when he was in rut.

My wife found that lemon juice in a quirt bottle helped out, but the thing that got the buck stop his antics when she tried to care for him was a steel-toed kick in the jewels one day when he blocked her exit from the barn. He RESPECTED her after that. It worked for her, but I would not advise it, as the buck is likely to kick back.
