what are your thoughts on the bull's horns? I fully appreciate the perceiving nature of the cow's horns, and their vital role in the life and health of a cow.
For my own selfish concerns over farm safety, I have been using dehorning paste on my bulls. For male animals that I plan to harvest young as beefs, I let their horns be. But for my bull, who I plan to have for 4-5 years, I have been preventing the growth of their horns. Not something I feel great about, truly.
I never hear much discussion of the meaning and value of the bull's horns. My understanding is that they are solid, unlike the blood-filled cow horns. Is this right? I have been told that whereas cow horns are remarkable organs of perception and communication, bull horns are basically large fingernails used as weapons. This seems a bit callous, but I dont know anything myself. I would really appreciate your thoughts on this subject.
Thanks for your teaching

I keep running across allusions to the importance of energy forms, like vortexes, and I don't know what it is called or what to read about.
Horns are interesting subjects. I noticed how deer rip my butternut trees to shreds, but the trees grow up healthy here, and bear nuts, whereas butternuts in many areas have a disease and do not bear nuts. I wondered if the deer inoculate the bark with some anti-fungal property or something.
Anyway, I quit worrying about my deer-scarred butternuts.

First, thanks to Paul Wheaton for the non-biasing gesture , including bio-dynamics into the dialog.
Since my own intro to BD , decades ago, there are still rumours, falsehoods and misinterpretations conferred onto its genesis and practises.
Would you care to elaborate ?
