So... Do nichelings have horns, or antlers?
You see, antlers aren't a specific shape of horn, but an entirely different structure. Antlers actually shed off every year, and are regrown for the next breeding season and are made out of bone.
While horns never fall off and are covered in keratin, and slowly grow throughout an animals life time. So by definition, nichelings actually only have horns! But what if, nichelings actually had an antler growth cycle?
They would shed their antlers every 20 days or so in game, and they'll grow back within 4-6 days. They won't get the attack bonus from the antlers during this period, obviously.
This feature is disabled on ram horns and can be disabled altogether in the settings if wanted
