2. FIT BREED STANDARD:  Check this box either that it meets breed standard or does not meet standard of the breed to be registered.  Height standard will be based on parents height if registering a kid.  If the parents both meet height standard, the kid will be accepted as meeting height.  The animals must meet breed standard of color and ear type.  Any question and they do not fit standard.

Center tail tattoos should include your unique herd numbers as well as individual animal number.
