Notes on Special Situations
When photographing progeny lambs, it is best to wait until they are at least two months of age so that they may mature suffi ciently for fair evaluation. For instance, a young lamb may not demonstrate its true horn structure or may show baby wool for ward of the horns (a fault) that will shed out in a few weeks. If photos are not clear, the certifiers may request new shots be taken before they can make a fair evaluation. In these cases, the certifiers may issue a Delay, while the lamb in question matures, or while waiting for clearer photos.
If you submit your applications and photos through the US Mail, we recommend that you keep copies of everything you send to the Registrar. If you do not hear from the Registrar, do not hesitate to get in touch with her to avoid unnecessary delays. We are now accepting applications and photos via e-mail. Please keep your own archive copies of these as well. ·
When you sell a JSC Registered sheep, please see to it that all of the paperwork is in order for the new owner. We encourage the breeder/seller of any sheep to complete a Transfer form and send it in to the Registrar with the original Registration papers, as a courtesy to the buyer. Many new buyers do not get this accomplished on their own.
