Horn Question

My cow has a slight dip in one of her horns. The other curves upward and the other is curving downward. I've been told that this is a trait of some kind of messed up hormone. Can anyone tell me about it?

I've never heard of a messed up hormone hypothesis.<br>How long are the horns?? I always tip (cut the ends)<br>mine at an angle to promote inward & downward curl<br>when they are about 6-8" long(hereford).<br> Of coures I just dehorn all that are getting fed <br>out

Sorry! You can always check with your vet!<br>V
