    My farm name is JCH Mountain Farm, but this is too long for an ADGS herd name...any suggestions? We are registered with AGS and have JCH as our tatoo...The 'JCH' is my kids initials - all the animals are their projects, we live on a road that has 'Mountain' in the name. We are in WV, have 3 children, have ND goats, horses, dogs, cats, and lots of chickens.
    Any short name suggestions??

    I registered JCH Mountain Farm with AGS. ADGA recommends staying shorter that 15 letters and spaces, and this name is too long. I went back and re-read their rules and it is just a recommendation, so maybe I should just stick with the original. Sorry for the goof...running on very little sleep.

    you will have only 12 spaces left for a name - so if you like short names (which is fine) and dont feel the need to add in sir or dams name then that will be fine.

    Can you do JCH M'Tain Farm? You would have 14 spaces left

    You wouldn't necessarily have to put the name Farm in it...so how about just JCH Mountain...then you could name the kids

    JCH Mountain's so and so....

    or

    JCH Mtn Farm if you want to keep Farm in it...

    I started off with AGS with Sunset Lake Ranch - then changed it to SLR minis. With ADGA I went just SLR because I have a couple Nubians that are registered through them....

    I would either keep them the same in both registries, or something very similar so that people can fing you in either registry pretty easy.

    You could also take the first couple of letters of your kids name, We have a road here called Tianda ln, the guy who named it has two daughters, Tia and Amanda.
