    Back in August, I purchased several Nigerian Dwarf goats. The seller was moving, the sale was time-sensitive. At pickup, she gave me the registration papers for the goats. 4 of them are registered with AGS. At the time, I did not think to get a bill of sale. (Or a receipt- I know, not very smart).

    Anyway, now I think I will have a problem getting them registered in my name. I do have several pre- and post- sale emails between the seller and myself that indicate that the sale went though, she acknowledges my receipt of the goats, etc. I have tried to call her, she is not returning my phone messages, or emails. She has since moved out of state.

    I have called AGS, they basically said "send us the registrations and forward the emails to us, and we'll see......"

    Do you think I am out of luck? Has anyone else had this experience? I wanted to use the buck with my LaMancha doelings to produce mini-manchas.

    I dont see why they wouldnt do it...I would definately make copies and send it registered mail to make sure they get the original paperwork. Thats what I do when I send in paperwork, I make copies and send it registered mail.

    How long does the process usually take once I've mailed the paperwork?

    shouldn't be very long and don't think you will have a problem.
    besides which you can still use the ND buck with his orginal ID and register any of your mini manchas

    The AGS office is fast! I normally have my papers back within a week of sending them.

    Amy at AGS has been most helpful to me. My papers usually take about 2 to 3 weeks to get back under normal conditions. So far everything has been sent back to me correct, so no troubles at all.

    But now, you have a totally different type situation with no bill of sales and stuff........I'll be most curious to see how much trouble that you're gonna have, if any.

    Well, I got an email today from Amy at AGS. She asked me to send her the contact info I have for the previous owner, and they would try to contact her to get verbal confirmation. Well, I hope that works- I have called and emailed to no avail......

    AGS is wonderful. Everyone I've talked to there is great and if they have a question they call you to ask, don't just send it all back with a note like ADGA does. Fast too. I'm in WI and usually get it back w/in 2 weeks.

    Good luck and hope it works out for you.

    .......................

    Imgaine the shear number and volume of calls this would be if ADGA called. It would be a full time paid position. They used to back in the day :) They are a huge association compared to AGS. Vicki
