Here is a link to the Pygmy Goat Club - it gives you details of tag numbering etc.

http://www.pygmygoatclub.org/general_info/legal_reqs.htm

You can start your own numbers anywhere - I think I started at 01 and as long as the numbers are sequential that's fine. But the herd number will be the same. A tip someone gave me which I have found to be very useful is have the herd number uppermost on one tag and the individual goat number uppermost on the other tag, that saves you breaking your back to see both numbers should the need arise!!
I keep pygmy goats too so if you need any more help just shout!!
