When I received Jitterbugs papers they were already transfered into my name. What she did was when I picked up my doe I signed the transfer and she sent that in along with her application. So she paid for that and I didnt have to do so. with Angie I received her papers and I paid to transfer them into my name. With the kids born from Sweet Pea I wanted to be able to give the actual AGS certificate to the new owners (obviously is more offical looking). I told them what they needed to do for the goat to be in their name and they have teh signed transfers by me. I was curious how you do it. I liked being able to hand over the registration papers at the time of pick up. To have them already in the new owners name is cool when they receive it, but I wouldnt know how to accomplish that without doing as the above mentioned breeder did and waiting till I picked up the doe signed the papers and then she sent them in. Because if I send in the papers at the time of deposit then if they back out I have to have a transfer from them signed buy them to get them back into my name......could get sticky. So how do you work registrations? do you register the kid and then let the new owner transfer? or do you send in the application with the transfer and give the owner the papers when they arrive? or do you give them that application for registration with the signed transfer? also how many of your let the buyer give their goat the name?
