Agreed and understood, however I may not have phrased my comment clearly, so
let me do so again. If someone draws up their device on a submission forrm
and writes somewhere on it (either in the notes field or elsewhere) that it
is "Or a cow salient sable" and then draws the device on the shield but it
looks instead like a goat, then shouldn't the Herald know from the description
that it is indeed a goat rather than a cow? And since these submissions are
supposed to be (and that may be a key point here) done with the help of a
Herald, shouldn't that Herald make some notations as well so as to avoid

To anyone who thinks I'm ragging on the Herlads, I'm not. I think this is
an important point for those who are doing their devices for the first time.
I'd hate to have my device come back as a goat crossing sign rather than the
cow crossing sign I originally wanted simply because I can't draw.

In service,
