OK, so I have NEVER had a problem with my Scrapie tags before this year. I have La Manchas, so I've never put the tags in their ears, I've always clipped them onto the collars. That's what the vet said I could do and he didn't think I should put tags in the Mancha ears because of the bigger risk of them tearing out. (our fair started yesterday and goes to the 4th) Yesterday, two guys from somewhere official (I think they were the state guys) came down and told me that the tags I had were Wisconsin ID tags, not Scrapie. They told me next year I needed a different kind of tag. Then after they left another official guy came along and told me that the tags I had were fine and he didn't have a problem except for the tags being on collars and not on a ear. This morning when I went to the barn to take care of the goats and the guy from the county (he's a really nice guy and he's on my side with this whole issue) told me that the second guy who came down chewed him out for allowing tags on the collar and that I needed new tags IMMEDIATELY, or I had to take my goats home. The other family who shows goats at our fair offered to get their tags and tag gun from home, so mine wouldn't have to leave. I was very reluctant to tag my two La Manchas because I love their ears the way they are and I didn't think I should have too. I was fine with tagging the two younger ones, because they have Pygmy ears and I didn't worry about tearing. I ended up tagging all four and I regret it really badly. It's too late now, but please tell me what you think I should have done. Please keep in mind, I had to decide this all by myself and I had no idea what to do. I feel really bad and I already cried about it and I'm trying not to cry right now.
