    I am new around here. I introduced myself in the welcome section, but I can do an other lil reintro.
    I have 1 pgymy :

    In a few days I can post some more pics of my new nigi does. I am hoping I get them on Wed. ANY HOO

    My nigi are reg. I believe with AGS, and a few others.

    I found the National Miniature Goat Assn though and I was just wondering about it. Anyone have any opinions?

    First off, welcome to TGS! :wave: I personally don't care for NMGA and here is why. It is for pygmies and nigi's but a lot of people don't know the difference. I was looking for a registered/purebred pygmy buck. A woman told me that she had one and I looked at him but I thought he looked nigi. I asked some people and they agreed. He was NMGA registered and I just think it causes some people problems if they are not aware of the difference. I don't mean to offend anyone but that is my honest oppinion.

    Always best to stick with the registries that are proven and have shows and actually count toward something.

    never heard of that one...
    i raise mini nubians and they are reg thru TMGR (the miniature goat registry) and MDGA (miniature dairy goat association)
    i THINK those registries are only for the "new" mini's (mini nub, mini mancha, etc) tho i am not totally sure
    i know that there are registries for pygmys and nigis
    good luck and have fun and welcome to the Goat Spot

    Thanks for the opinions. It looked kind of like a little start up reg I didn't think it was really taken seriously but I was just wondering.
