I'm wanting to register my herd with the NMGA. I have a couple of questions before I go ahead. So, I need a farm name and then there's a prefix on the animals name. Are these the same or can the prefix be a shortened version of the farm name? I want my farm name to be Parker's little goat farm or Parker's Little Goats, but that's awful long to have at the start of the registered name. Can the prefix just be Parker's? (Parker is my son's name btw). Ex..Parker named our new little buckling Opie (don't know how my 3 year old came up with Opie, as far as I know he's never watched the Andy Griffith Show..he may have with Grandpa lol) ..for a registered name I'd like to call him "I Miss Mayberry"...so could he be just "Parker's I Miss Mayberry" or would it have to be "Parker's Little Goats' I Miss Mayberry". If it's the latter I'll have to come up with a shorter name, like just Parker's Minis or something. Also, do they have to be a certain age before they can be registered? I thought I read someone mention on here or another message board that they can't be registerd til 6 months. Last one..with the pictures that need to be submitted..do I just take pictures or are they pictures with the measuring tape shown to verify the actual size of the animal? Thanks for any help I can get.
