If the drawing were clearly a goat even though blazoned a cow, it would get
reblazoned and registered as a goat. However, were it to be not clearly one
or the other, a return for a redraw is in order. 

The charges as drawn must be identifiable, and the drawing must be
reconstructable from the blazon. If you can't go from blazon to emblazon
back to blazon (or emblazon to blazon to emblazon) and end up with what
you started with, there is a problem. Often this problem manifests itself
as a great difficulty blazoning the picture.
