It's a very nasty, caustic substance that kills the cells responsible for horn growth.
Nasty crap, but not nearly as nasty as getting gored.

I wanted to delete my heaters in the way you suggested, but I have no experience with engines of any kind and I couldn't figure out how to do it (or even how to open my hood) whereas the lines to the back were just sitting right there. Next time in the shop I'm going to have my mechanic do it properly - I assume it's a fairly trivial task for someone that knows what they're doing.

Dehorning paste only is an irritant. I have a gate that people would climb over ignoring the keep out
Posters- I smeared old nasty grease all over that top rail. Left many marks. Police would say he probably got acid in his hands from stealing batteries.

The window does not lock. but to get into the bus easily you must pop the pivot arm "AND" remove the locked hasp. I got ok low grade locks abus hasp and disc lock. not great but better than masterlock for sure


the hasp is the security the window and strap is how you open the door once you remove the lock.

All the thief has to do is watch you 1 time or figure it out by looking thru the windows.


He could also just bust the window on the door and pry the lever back with a 2x4

I don't think an unlocked window is secure
