Sweet Relish 4-13-92 MKK / D11 19521 F In the mid 1990s, I changed my tattoo system. Instead of using NPGA's suggestion, I used the last two numbers of the birth year and a letter to designate the order of birth during that year.  One can determine the goat's age at a glance, rather than trying to remember which year is which letter.

It's easy to add new kids at the bottom to create a chronological list of the herd.
(Yes, these really were some of my goats - it was so much fun naming all the kids in our "Pickle" line.)
