    Well, one typical day im working the goats having them run around and they all look no different til we get back. I notice Riots ear tag was out!! Now this is a complicated HUGE tag thats hard to get out. Poor little fella. Anyways, does anybody know how to get the tag back in? His ear it not ripped and was bleeding just a little when it did come out.. i have a picture of last week when i had him out..

    you'd need to re-tag him, but just put it in the same spot...was it a scrapie tag or just herd?

    IF you can use the same tag do so, just get it washed well, if not re tag him with a new tag but keep a record of both tags. I have one doe that has managed to get 6 tags out so far. NON of them have ever tore the ear, matter of fact we have no idea how they are coming out, but I have a list of tag numbers for her. :GAAH:

    Those tags are a bit trickey... you might think you got it in but its just at the first click. squeeze hard till it clicks twice.
