I bought a registered Nigerian Dwarf doe yesterday and I am totally confused about this whole AGS membership. I am not currently a member but plan on joining. I understand the yearly membership is $20.00 individual and that the transfer fee for a member is $2.50. So if I join then I can transfer the registration and this whole herd name thing and tatto thing befuddles me. I understand that Maya (my new goat) has a tattoo but if I breed her do I need my own and how do I make one up. Same with a herd name, do I pull one out of a hat? I really want to breed her this fall (she was 1 on February 28th) and also my unregistered goat. I understand if I breed a non-registered Nigerian doe to a registered buck I can register her does, is this right. See all these questions and I feel so dumb.
