Susanne, if you want to register your goats usually the registry wants you to use the assigned letter for that year. 2007 (for ADGA) was X, 2008 it is Y. I believe that you have registered Nubians, right? If you are planning on registering the kids you should definitely see which letter your registry uses.

I think all the registries say this is the "suggested" letter for this year. I don't think you have to use their letter but it makes it easier on me to use the letter they choose for the year.

We used the same system you're describing though when we raised rabbits for Pel-Freez (sp?). We only tattooed the ones we registered and kept for breeding stock and it was an easy system. I can see why you like it!
