My boyfriend and I tattooed the kids' ears today in preparation for their ADGA registration. he held them while I did the tattoo work. The Nubians are definatley the easiest to work with. The small eared Swiss type kids are very difficult. Now we just need to get the disbudding down but that will come next kidding season (ours this year were done by someone else with us watching to learn) goat keeping is truly a multi-tasking art with many skills to learn.
