After an uncomfortable night with her head wrapped in duct tape, this morning we relieved poor little Victoria of her burden.
Once we chased an annoyed and protective Ruby out of the barn, it was a simple matter to catch Victoria and snip the duct tape off her head.
With the duct tape peeled away, the ugly wounds were revealed.
But truly, this is as bad as it gets. Her head will heal beautifully after this, though it will take several months for the scabs to fall off. But as I said before, if her behavior is anything to go by, the pain is minimal. Finally sprung free from the confines of the barn, Victoria spent the rest of the day bouncing around and looking adorable, testing out her legs and making friends with Polly and Thor.
Another successful dehorning!
