In this regard, can you dehorn a full grown goat?

Dehorning the adult goat. Although goats are ideally disbudded as infants, occasionally they are not. Goats grow horns much more rapidly than most owners realize and use these horns on other goats and, occasionally, people. Dehorning adult goats is not as easy as dehorning cattle.

Additionally, what age should you dehorn a goat? The most effective way to keep horns off dairy goats is to disbud kid goats with a hot iron before they are a month old. Usually you should disbud kids at 4 to 10 days of age. A proper disbudding tool should have a tip 3/4" to 1" in diameter.
